The Bison is a symbol of Bucknell and Bucknell athletics. 

Especially at this time of the year it is associated with the king 

of fall sports — football. The "Bisons" open their season at home 

on September 22, with Gettysburg as the opponent. The complete 
schedule is listed on page 9.

THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May 
September, and November by BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY. Entered 
as second-class matter December 30, 1930 at the post office at Lewis- 
burg. Pa., under Act of August 24, 1912. 

Davis Gymnasium is the site for the annual Susquehanna Valley Science Fair.

Today, your University is a gathering place, not 
just for students and faculty, but for the community 
at large and for visitors from all parts of the 
United States. Businessmen, bankers, high school 
students, and churchmen galber here. Many 
times groups meeting here have close relations with 
the University, and sometimes none at all. They 
meet, learn, and are enlightened at institutes, 
conferences, symposiums, concerts and a host of 
other activities. Like the students, they look to 
the University for a charging of their mental 
batteries and for the opportunity to learn what 
others are doing and why and how. Bucknell 
continues in its role to society by providing the 
means and opportunity necessary for the intellectual 
development of a responsible citizenry.

Mass confusion and a time for gab fests preceded the parade of Alumni to the Alumni Luncheon on Alumni Day. 


THE 1962 Alumni Reunion Week End will, no doubt, go 
on the historical record as the year attendance records 
were broken. More Alumni than ever before returned for 
the three-day celebration. The Class of 1942 broke all 
existing attendance records of any reunion class and showed 
real imagination in the selection of their class reunion re- 
galia (they were really colorful in their chef's hats and 
matching appurtenances). It was the year a Bucknell wo- 
man. Mrs. Clyde P. Bailey (Dorothy Lemon '29), was 
chosen as president of The General Alumni Association — 
the last woman president. Mrs. Joseph B. Kelly (Emily 
Devine '21), served in 1953: the year that "William Buck- 
nell Associates" was announced as an adjunct of the Buck- 
nell University Alumni Annual-Giving Fund : the year that 
the Bucknell Blueprint 1962-1972 — a blueprint for Bur-knell's 
future, specifically for the next ten years, was presented. 

The President 's Address 

Highlight ol the Saturday luncheon program, attended 
by over 1,000 Alumni in Davis Gymnasium, was the annua! 
address of Dr. Merle M. Odgers, President of the Univer- 
sity. In his "State of the University" address, he said, in 
part : 

The problem of student admissions is still with us 
as the admissions department received 3,600 applica- 
tions to fill the 650 places open in the Freshman Class 
of 1966. A total of 1900 families was interviewed. 

A further reduction in the attrition rate has been 
achieved when only five academic dropouts of fresh- 
men occurred at the end of the first semester this year, 
as compared to 27 freshman academic dropouts at 
the end of the first semester of the 1960-61 year. 

Three faculty members with a total of 91 years of 
Bucknell teaching service will retire on July 1. Dr. 
George A. Irland '15, professor of electrical engineer- 
ing, with a teaching career of 42 years, will retire to 
devote his full time as president of the Citizen's Elec- 
tric Company of Lewisburg. Dr. Adolph I. Frantz, 
professor of German, will complete 30 years as a 
Bucknell teacher, but has already accepted a position 
as professor of German at Arizona State University, 
Tempe, Arizona. Miss Harriet A. Love M.S. '44, 
associate professor of economics, will complete 19 
years of service as a teacher at Bucknell. 

Twelve members of the Bucknell staff will receive 
promotions. Dean Mark C. Ebersole, Dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences, will become Vice Presi- 
dent for Academic Affairs. Dr. Leon Pacala. asso- 
ciate professor of religion and chairman of the De- 
partment of Religion, will become Dean of the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Wesley N. Haines will 
he promoted to Vice President of Development. Pro- 
moted to a full professor will be Charles H. Coder M.S. 
'59 of the mechanical engineering department. Pro- 
moted to the rank of associate professor are: Benton 


Clyde P. Bailey, Esq. '29, ivas presented the Buck- 
nell Chair and Alumni Certificate for Outstanding 
Service, Unselfish Interest, and Demonstrated Loy- 
alty to the University and The General Alumni 
Association. The prettier half of the Bailey team, 
Mrs. Dorothy Lemon Bailey '29, was also honored, 
by being elected President of The General Alumni 

Fun and frivolity pervaded Alumni Week End, but. there was also the serious 
side. Delegates to the Annual Assembly met in the air-conditioned University 
Theatre to elect three Alumni to the Board of Directors of the General Alumni 
Association and to hear reports on the activities of the Association during the 
past year. 

A. Kribbs M.S. '59, physical education; Charles T. 
Ressler '52, accounting; Neil F. Shiffler, business ad- 
ministration; and John S. Wheatcroft '49, English. 
Promoted to the academic rank of assistant professor 
are: Charles D. Gerstan, psychology: Warren T. Mor- 
rill, sociology; John W. Tilton '52, English; and 
Gregory Wulczyn, mathematics. 

Dr. Karl D. Hartzell, Dean of the University, has 


Beginning in September an academic council and 
an administrative council will be appointed to confer 
on activities in their respective fields. 

Mrs. Charles E. Copeland (Amorita Sesinger '22) 
of Madison, N. J., was nominated for election as an 
Alumni Trustee on the Board of Trustees of Bucknell 
University for a term of five years. Mrs. Copeland 
is Assistant to the Dean for Development, New York

"V. . 

Under the direction of Professor William D. McRae. Jr.. Chairman of the Department of Music, the 
Mixed Chorus and the Bucknell Symphony Orchestra present the "Messiah" in Davis Gymnasium. 


By Professor William D. McRae. Jr. and Associate Professor Allen W. Flock 

THE Bucknell University Department of Music will be 
sponsor and host to a "Music As A Career Conference" 
on the University campus November 16 and 17, 1962. 

Among the distinguished career musicians at the Con- 
ference will be Vincent Persichetti, author, artist, and teacher 
at the Juilliard School of Music, and one of America's out- 
standing composers; Maurice Whitney, composer-educator 
and director of music in the public schools of Glens Falls, 
N. Y.; Dr. Glen Riggin, director of music in the Passaic, 
N. J., Public Schools and a member of the executive board 
of the New Jersey Music Educators Association ; James Hall 
'59, Bucknell University music graduate. Danforth Fellow 
and instructor in music at Cedar Crest College: and Dr. 
Margaretta Carey, head of the Division of Profession Stand- 
ards and Evaluations in the Bureau of Teacher Education 
in the Pennsylvania Department of Public Instruction. 

The invitation to this first "Music As A Career Confer- 
ence" stems from the sincere desire of the Department of 
Music to create a cultural atmosphere where young men and 
women can discuss the many possibilities of a career in 
music. High school students and their music teachers are 
invited to attend the conference as guests of the Department 
of Music. A full two days of panel and group discussions 
are being planned for the visiting music students and teach- 
ers with the distinguished panelists, Bucknell music students, 
and faculty. 


The sound of music will be heard throughout the campus 
on the conference week end. The State Orchestra of Lenin- 
grad, through the efforts of the Artist Series, will present a 
concert in Davis Gymnasium on Friday evening. On Satur- 
day evening, in the same hall, the Department of Music 
will present a "Contemporary American Composers Concert" 
featuring the Bucknell University Mixed Chorus, composed 
of the Bucknell University Chapel Choir, Men's and Wo- 
men's Glee Clubs and, instrumentally, the Symphony Or- 
chestra and the Symphonic Band. Mr. Persichetti will 
guest conduct each of the groups and Mr. Whitney will lead 
all the musicians in a "finale" selection. Conductors from 
the music faculty will be Professors McRae, Flock, Crim, 
Merrill and Josephson. 

Of advantage to persons interested in hearing solo per- 
formances will be a "Scholarship Audition Contest." This 
event will be held concurrently with the Conference and all 
high school seniors attending will be invited to compete 
for the first three top ratings. The winners will receive 
plaques and be eligible for scholarship aid in one of the 
music degree programs at Bucknell University. 

Alumni and friends of the University are invited to at- 
tend all the events of the Conference without admission 
charge, except for the Leningrad concert I tickets may be 
purchased by writing to the Artist Series, Bucknell Univer- 
sity, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, Prof. Lindsey Merrill. Chair- 
man) . 


Students considering a career in music ( and their 
teachers) should write to Allen W. Flock, Chairman, "Mu- 
sic As A Career Conference," Department of Music, Buck- 
nell University, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, for more infor- 
mation (lodging and two supper meals will be provided 
on the campus) . 

Perspective on the Past 

The career conference is only the latest in a continuing 
line of non-curricular activities by which the Department 
of Music seeks to enrich the life of its students. Alumni, 
faculty, and the local scene. Music has been a part of 
Bucknell for almost the whole period of its existence, be- 
ginning with the work of Melville Malcolm in 1853 and 
continuing through the efforts of Professors Held, Loos, 
Eberhardt, and Aviragnet '92. In 1903, Paul G. Stolz '08 
became associated with Dr. Aviragnet, and succeeded him 
at his death in 1908 as the Director of the School of Music. 
(At this time it constituted one of the four distinct schools 
of the University.) Dr. Stolz's tenure lasted forty years 
until his retirement in 1948 when he was succeeded by Dr. 
Harold Cook, under whose guidance the present degree 
curricula were installed. The successive locations of the 
Department of Music — in the basement of Harris Hall 
(1928), the present Carey House and annex (1928-1954), 
and the move to the present quarters (1954) — demon- 
strated the increasing need for suitable accommodations 
and the University's willingness to provide them when it 
became possible. We see the historical picture of Bucknell's 
Department of Music more clearly when we realize that its 
development closely follows the general development of 
music in higher education in America, and that even such 
an august body as the National Association of Schools of 
Music (of which Bucknell is a member) was founded in 
1928, and is hence a relative newcomer on the scene. The 
founding of NASM was emblematic of the change of out- 
look, however, wherein America began to look less and 
less to Europe for its performers and teachers of music, 
and more and more to its own people. 

Focus on Obligation 

As was mentioned in the preceding, one of the pecu- 
liarly valuable non-academic contributions a music de- 
partment can make to its local scene is in the realm of the 
voluntary, optional, non-curricular activity which seeks to 
put the student in touch with the most compelling expres- 
sions in music either as an auditor or participant. The 
roster of concerts on the campus includes not only the vir- 
tuoso performances of the Artist Course and the professional 
appearances of the performing and lecturing faculty mem- 
bers, but also the highly competent presentations of the 
student organizations (a memorable experience both for 
those who perform and those who listen), and the numerous 
student recitals. The tremendous growth over the last four 
decades of the performing student groups at all levels of 
the American educational system has created a demand for 
competent music teachers — private, public school, and col- 
legiate — which cannot be met at the present time nor in 
the foreseable future, and it is the opportunities and re- 
wards of the profession that this particular career confer- 
ence wishes to address itself. Music, in an age of science 
and business, needs to compete on equal terms with other 
professions for the talents of those who are gifted in music 
and other areas in addition. Moreover, music in higher 
education depends on and owes a debt to the orderly and 


Vincent Persichetti 

sound academic development of the art in the primary and 
secondary schools where its professional practitioners and 
amateur enthusiasts receive their start. 

Profile of Opportunity 

With the rising competence of American musicians and 
the increasing recognition of music's place in the academic 
milieu at all levels has come the more effective curricular 
organization of the recent past. The student's musical 
interest may be in a purely avocational spirit; he may wish 
to pursue a general education with emphasis on music as 
a Bachelor of Arts with a major in music: he may wish to 
pursue a strong emphasis on the technical, theoretical, and 
performing side as a Bachelor of Music; or he may wish 
to prepare himself for teaching in the public schools as a 
Bachelor of Science in Music Education. Bucknell's De- 
partment of Music has offered these emphases over a long 
period, but it is only within the last ten years that they 
have been correlated with the best nationwide practices in 
curricular form. With changing times, goals, and standards, 
these curricula will undoubtedly undergo modifications, but 
their basic aim — to best serve the cause of music and higher 
education — will remain. 

Bucknell's Department of Music — with careful admis- 
sion procedures, thriving student musical organizations, a 
faculty of high competence in all the various aspects of 
music, physical equipment which is carefully maintained, 
and academic procedures which are under continuous scru- 
tiny — stands ready to serve the purposes of amateur and 
professional alike. It invites the Alumni to urge talented 
students to visit the campus for this conference to see 
students and faculty in action and to experience the beauty 
of Bucknell's setting.

SEASON records of 7-2 and 6-3 in the past two years and a 
Lambert Cup title in 1960 speak for themselves, and 
although there are major rebuilding tasks at several posi- 
tions, indications are that the coming campaign will be an- 
other rough one for Bison opponents. 

The 1962 grid squad is perhaps the youngest that Coach 
Bob Odell has had in his five years at the helm. The 54-man 
squad roster lists only 14 lettermen and 9 seniors and the 
coaching staff will have to rely upon 27 sophomores up from 
last fall's frosh team for a great deal of the reserve strength. 
First year men are given a good chance to break into the 
starting or alternate unit at some positions. 

Heading the list of returning veterans is Captain Dick 
Tyrrell, a 6-1. 205-pound end from Woodbridge, N. J. 
Named to the All-Middle Atlantic Conference team for the 
past two seasons, "Ty" should rank among the top ends in 
the East this fall and with a productive pass catching mark 
could vault to the top of the all-time Bucknell receiving list. 
He's been the Bisons' top receiver for two seasons with a 
two-year total of 41 receptions for 542 yards. 

Other starters returning from the 1961 unit are end Rene 
Clements, a 6-0. 195 pound senior from Pittsburgh, center 
George Rieu, a 5-11, 190 pound senior from Atlantic City, 
N. J., Tom Boyd, a 6-0, 215 pound junior guard from Haver- 
town, and Ron Giordano, the senior quarterback from 
Collingswood, N. J., who sparked the victories over Buffalo 
and Delaware last year. 

Clements teams with Tyrrell to give the Bisons one of the 
best sets of terminals in the conference and this senior pair 
is backed up by junior lettermen John Thornton and Phil 
Morgan and soph standouts Gary Sease and Denny Markley. 

Boyd, the only sophomore in the starting unit at the end 
nl I he '61 campaign, will probably team with senior Dick 
Orlowski at the guard posts. Giving added depth to this 
strong position are junior lettermen Bill Swineford and Bill 
McQuown and sophomores Scott Ellis and Andy Dzurinko. 
the latter a converted starting end for last year's frosh team. 

Backing up the dependable Rieu. a second team All-MAC 
choice in 1961, is junior letterman Jeff Fichter and sophs 
Bill Sholly. John Cunningham and Don Cooperson. The big 
problem in the line is to develop a pair of starting tackles, 
positions hard hit by graduation and academic losses. 

The top three tackles a year ago were seniors and the 
other member of the alternate unit. Dick Lebec, has dropped 
out of school. There are no lettermen available and the four 
returning squad members — Bob Cooley, Jim Hicks. Chuck 
Newland and Darryl Novak — are non-lettermen and have 
seen limited action. Battling the veterans for the starling 
jobs will be such sophomore standouts as Bob Broun. 
George Hock, Ed Manigan, Ron Lodeski and Ted Ratkus. 

In the backfield Giordano is the only returning starter, 
but there is depth behind him at the signal calling post and 
a large, but relatively inexperienced corps of halfbacks. 
Junior Joe Elliott, the MAC punting champion, is the onl) 


veteran fullback, but soph Dave Reitze should be able to 
handle the alternate unit chores. 

A pair of highly promising sophomores. Bob Haering 
and Jeff Mair, will back up "Gio" at quarterback, and if 
their services are needed, Norm Garrity and Don Rodgers, 
who were switched to halfback this spring, could move back 
to their old post. Haering is a dangerous runner and looked 
good on defense in spring practice, while Mair is the young 
tosser who completed 19 of 22 aerial attempts for the Baby 
Bisons last fall. 

Junior Mike Connell and Garrity, the only letterman half- 
backs, will be in the thick of the fight with two or three 
other veterans and several promising sophs for the starting 
jobs. In addition to Rodgers, junior speedsters Matt Hart 
and Mike Seigfried return from the '61 squad. Bob Laugh- 
ton, one of the real standouts in spring practice, Hal Riley, 
last year's leading frosh ground gainer, and Charlie Thomas, 
could all make it big in their first varsity season. 

This is a young squad and experience is limited, but the 
sophomore material is abundant and talented and could pro- 
vide the impetus for another big winning campaign. Team 
speed seems to have improved and desire is plentiful, both 
factors that could help to overcome inexperience. This is a 
squad that could win the early games and should definitely 
improve as the season progresses through October and into 

The schedule is again demanding and with depth limited 
at certain positions the availability of key men should be a 
big factor. The Bisons leave Hershey and meet traditional 
rival Gettysburg at home and will be in Memorial Stadium 
four other times during the campaign. The following is a 
brief account of what Coach Bob Odell's charges will face in 
the march that begins in Lewisburg on September 22 and 
ends in Newark, Delaware, on November 17. 

GETTYSBURG — The Bullets lose quarterback Earl Little, 
the 1961 MAC passing and total offense leader, and will be 
in trouble at this position. Last year's frosh team was a 
good one and soph halfback Ken Snyder could be a starter. 
Gene Haas' club should definitely be strong, but will be met 
at Lewisburg for the first time in several years. 

TEMPLE — The Owls are on the rise and have one of the 
fastest backfields in the conference. Tackle Bill Lites is one 
of the best around. Twenty-three lettermen are returning 
and the club should be improved on defense. Definitely a 
threat in the MAC race. 

MASSACHUSETTS— The Redmen were 5-4 a year ago, but 
have only 12 returning lettermen. Quarterback is a serious 
problem and sophomores will have to provide much of the 
depth at the ends, guards and center. This is the first meet- 
ing between the two teams.

A Message From Your 
Alumni Fund Committee 

1962-1963 . . . 


WHEN the Empire State Building in New York was 
brand new. Hon. Alfred E. Smith delighted in escort- 
ing visiting groups up and down its high-speed elevators. 
A lady in one group asked, "Governor, if the cable on 
this elevator broke, would we go up or down?" Smith re- 
plied. ''Madam, it would depend on the kind of life you've 
been leading." 

We predict that our Alumni Annual-Giving will go up 
this year because the "kind of life" our Alma Mater has 
been leading deserves and requires just that. 

In advance of its printing and distribution we reproduce 
here the text of an invitation to all of us to join WILLIAM 
BUCKNELL ASSOCIATES as charter members in 1962- 
1963 as the core of our effort to reach a higher level in 
our annual support program: 

To Add Strength to Strength 

Back in the 1880's the University at Lewisburg 
became Bucknell University. A Philadelphia business- 
man had lent his name and his substance to the strug- 
gling institution. Bucknell University today owes 
much of its stability and strength to William Bucknell. 

Bucknellians. during the 1962-1963 Alumni Fund 
effort, can add greater stability and strength to their 
Alma Mater, in imitation of William BuckneH's phil- 
anthropy, by becoming charter members of an Asso- 
ciates group bearing his name. 

Terms of Membership 

Charter membership in William Bucknell Associates 
is open to any Alumnus, former student, or friend of 
Bucknell University who contributes $100 or more to 
the 1962-1963 Alumni Fund. While membership is 
renewable in subsequent years, charter membership 
does not obligate the subscriber beyond the 1962-1963 
Fund year. Suitable recognition will be given to all 
charter members. 

A Record of Loyalty and Pride 

Among college alumni funds, Bucknell's Alumni 
Annual-Giving Program is young — started in 1948- 
1949 — but its story is one of increasing strength and 
importance to the University. At its inauguration, 500 
donors contributed $5,000. In the last full year of its 
operation before merging with the Dual Development 


Fund capital-gifts campaign in 1958-1959, 4747 donors 
contributed $57,850.00. Through the years, the Annual 
Fund has provided for Bucknell the current support to 
keep its budget consistently in the black. It has meant 
the annual margin of solvency with progress, and it 
provided the background of strength for the success- 
ful capital additions to endowment and physical plant 
by the Dual Development Fund. 

To Continue the Progress Story 

In 1962-1963. three years after the start of the 
capital-gifts effort, the Alumni Fund resumes its full 
operation (although some are still meeting their Dual 
Development Fund pledges I — and its vital function in 
the University's over-all financing. And the Alumni 
Fund seeks a new level commensurate with the needs 
and the strengthened stature of Bucknell — about a 1/3 
increase ovei'1958-1959, or $80,000. 

For The Bucknell of Tomorrow 

Building on its past strength. Bucknell has under- 
taken a blueprint of progress calling for capital addi- 
tions to endowment and physical plant in 1962-1972 
totalling $12,700,000. The achievement of this projec- 
tion will require the help of many friends, old and new, 
among foundations, corporations and individuals who 
are not Bucknellians. Probably the most persuasive 
factor in winning their support will be the level and per- 
centage of participation by Bucknellians in their Annual 
Fund. As in the past decade, so in the next, the Alumni 
Annual-Giving Program will provide the 
strength for future progress. 


One in Five Hundred 

By enrolling in William Bucknell Associates, a 
Charter Member becomes one of five hundred needed 
to provide a minimum base of $50,000 to achieve the 
new level goal of $80,000 in 1962-1963. 

Welcome to William Bucknell Associates. 
The above invitation will be extended to all of us within 
the next few months. We are confident that both the mini- 
mum number of charter associates and the dollar amount 
goal will be over-subscribed, enabling Bucknell to continue 
to lead a life of rapid and substantial progress our times 
demand in higher education. 



THROUGH a wise provision in the Constitution and By- 
Laws of The General Alumni Association, you have 
the privilege — and responsibility — of suggesting the names 
of Bucknellians to be considered by nominating committees 
as candidates for a number of University and alumni posts. 

Furthermore. Bucknellians follow the democratic process 
of not only nominating but of electing their representatives 
for the University Board of Trustees and for the Board of 
Directors of The General Alumni Association by an election 
process that provides several candidates from which the 
choice of a winner can be made by the alumni voters them- 

These broad democratic principles are not followed in 
all alumni associations. On many campuses the alumni 
governing board themselves select the candidates for alumni 
posts. And, in many instances, only one candidate is se- 
lected for each office to be filled. Bucknellians have always 
felt that such nomination and election procedures do not 
provide adequately for the practice of democratic princi- 
ples no matter how conscientious alumni governing boards 
and committees might be. Of course, just as in community, 
state and federal nominations and elections, the whole proc- 
ess is weakened unless broad participation by the voter 
is secured. 

Each year one Alumni Trustee is nominated for con- 
sideration for membership on the Board of Trustees by vote 
of Alumni from a slate of three candidates selected by the 
Alumni Committee on Nomination of Trustee. In our large 
alumni body, many likely possibilities might be over-looked 
unless we have your suggestion at hand. Your suggested 
candidate need not be a member of your class nor must he 

reside in your community, but he must have attended Buck- 
nell University and should be able to give consideration of 
the broad problems of University policy and should be 
willing and able to attend two board meetings plus several 
committee meetings each year. 

The committee on Alumni Awards will meet on Satur- 
day, October 20, to select recipients for alumni awards in 
three categories: (a) for meritorious achievement in the 
field or profession in which the candidate is engaged, (b) 
for recognized contributions and service to followmen 
through such media as religion, charity, art, science or 
public welfare, and (c) for outstanding service, unselfish 
interest, and demonstrated loyalty to the University and 
to the Association. The committee will appreciate your 
suggestions of candidates in these three categories. 

The By-Laws of The General Alumni Association pro- 
vide for an election of three members to the governing 
Board of Directors each year, and you are invited to sug- 
gest the names of Alumni to be considered as Alumni Board 
of Director nominees. 

In the past, a few Alumni have misinterpreted this call 
for candidates and have felt that multi-recommendations are 
necessary for favorable committee action. Such is not the 
case; a candidate with one recommendation receives the 
same committee consideration as a candidate with a hundred 
recommendations. It would be well to keep in mind that 
under our By-Laws, nominating committees are required to 
select the candidate it considers "best suited and qualified," 
rather than on the basis of the number of recommendations. 
Selection of candidates should never be made as a result 
of a popularity contest.

Benton A. Kribbs MS'59, varsity basketball coach at 
Bucknell for the past decade and assistant athletic director 
for several years, has been appointed Director of Athletics 
and Physical Education. 

The appointment of Mr. Kribbs was made to fill the 
vacancy created by the sudden death on June 29. 1962, of 
Albert E. Humphreys who had been Director of Athletics 

Known to many Bucknel- 
lians. Mr. Kribbs compiled 
a fine record in basketball 
at Bucknell and competed 
against some of the strongest 
Middle Atlantic Conference 
and independent quintets in 
the East over the years. In 
assuming his new position, 
he will relinquish his coach- 
ing duties to devote full time 
to directing the University's 
intercollegiate athletic and 
physical education programs. 

Mr. Kribbs is a native of 
Ben kribbs KnQX an( j graduated from 

Clarion State College in 1939. From 1939 to 1942 he 
coached football and basketball at Remersburg High School 
and from 1942 to 1946 was coach of football, basketball, 
and baseball at Freeport High School. From 1946 to 1949 
he coached football at Waynesboro High School, and for 
three years prior to coming to Bucknell he was head coach 
of football, basketball, and baseball at his alma mater. In 
1952 he joined the Bucknell faculty as varsity basketball 
coach, freshman football coach and member of the physical 
education staff. 

Mr. Kribbs is married to the former Carol Haskell of 
Clarion. They have three sons: Robert. 21; William. 16: 
and John. 13. 


During the year 1962-63 the following tentative dates 
and areas have been listed by the directors of the following 
music groups: the Chapel Choir will tour the northern 
New York and Syracuse areas from April 5-7, 1963. 

The Men's Glee Club will visit eastern New York State 
from January 25-29, 1963. and the Women's Glee Club 
will sing during the same period in the Pittsburgh area 
and in Ohio as far west as Cleveland. 

The Symphonic Band will tour the Baltimore. Wash- 
ington, and northern Delaware areas from March 16-20. 

The Symphony Orchestra will travel to Philadelphia 
and northern New Jersey from February 23-25, 1963. 

Directors of the three vocal groups are presently con- 
sidering sending a concert group to the Chicago area be- 
tween semesters in January, 1964. 


Additional information about any of these touring 
musical groups can be obtained by writing to the student 
managers of the particular groups. 


The Bucknell campus was a beehive of activity this 
summer. Over 110 basic advanced and graduate courses 
were offered during the summer term which began on June 
25 and ended on August 3. 

Running concurrently with the six-week summer sessions 
were six special summer institutes and a guidance work- 
shop. The institute programs included : the Institute for 
High School Teachers in Science and Mathematics, under 
the direction of Dr. Lester Kieft: the Institute in Engineer- 
ing Sciences, headed by Prof. Charles H. Coder MS'59; 
the Institute for Asian Studies conducted by Dr. David J. 
Lu; the Institute of American Studies, led by Dr. C. Herschel 
Jones: the Summer Language Institute in French and Span- 
ish, under the direction of Dr. Albert M. K. Blume, and 
the Institute for State Employment Counselors, Dr. Allen 
E. Ivey, director. 

Included among the three other institutes held on the 
campus during the summer was Dr. William MendenhalFs 
'45 Summer Statistics Institute. This one-week program 
was attended by 14 key executives of large corporations. 

Thirty-two high school junior boys, chosen from more 
than 200 applicants, attended the Institute for High School 
Students under the direction of Dr. Lester Kieft. 

Completing the list of institutes held during the sum- 
mer was the 19th annual Institute for Foreign Students 
directed by Prof Harvey M. Powers. Students from more 
than 30 foreign countries attended the eight-week program. 


In the past six years five outstanding guest lecturers 
in the field of literature have visited the Bucknell campus 
and delivered open lectures. These lectures have been made 
possible by a lectureship established on November 15, 1957, 
in memory of Dr. Harry W. Robbins who, for many years, 
was Professor of English and Chairman of the Department 
of English at Bucknell. 

On May 8, 1962. Dr. Charles W. Dunn, Professor of 
Medieval Literature at New York University, author and 
editor of broad experience, delivered a public lecture in 
which he discussed Dr. Robbins' translation of The Romance 
of the Rose recently published by E. P. Dutton and Co. 

The Romance of the Rose, an allegory of courtly love, 
was begun in 1237 by Guillaume de Forris. who wrote 4058 
lines, and completed by Jean de Meun, who amplified and 
completed the poem to 21,780 lines. It was written in 
four-beat rhyming couplets. 

Dr. Robbins completed his blank verse translation in 
1939. It is the first complete translation in English. 

According to Dr. Dunn. "'The second half of the twen- 
tieth century seems to rn"rk the renaissance of translation. 
It is my belief that Harry Wolcott Robbins will be recog- 


nized as one of the outstanding masters of this flourishing 
art, for he has reopened the treasury of our literary heri- 

Alumni desiring to purchase a copy of Dr. Robbins' 
translation may do so by writing to the University Book- 
store, Bucknell University. 

Professors Ralph Rees '39. Edward Partridge. Karl 
Patten, and Joseph Guerinot. all members of the Department 
of English, have served as a committee for the lectureship. 
Professor Rees served as chairman of the committee. 


As Bucknell begins its 117th year, 11 new faculty mem- 
bers have been added to the Bucknell campus family. 
The new appointments were made to fill the vacancies re- 
sulting from leaves of absence, retirement, and resignations. 

Dr. Morris S. Knebelman, visiting professor of mathe- 
matics at Allegheny College, will join the Department of 
Mathematics as visiting professor. Dr. Knebelman has 
served as Dean of Natural Sciences at Washington State 
University and has been a professor and department chair- 
man of mathematics at that institution. 

Joining the faculty as assistant professors are Chaiho 
Kim and Dr. Donald A. Olewine. Mr. Kim has been lec- 
turer at Columbia University where he has been working 
on his Ph.D. He will join the faculty of the Department 
of Business Administration. Dr. Olewine has been physi- 
ologist at the National Heart Institute's gerontology section 
in Baltimore, Md., for the past four years. He will join 
the Department of Biology. 

There have been four new instructors appointed for the 
next academic year. James D. Lyon of the English depart- 
ment has served as technical assistant in speech and drama 
at Stanford University. Robert A. Crovelli '60 will join 
the Department of Mathematics. Last year while working 
on his master's degree, he served as a graduate assistant in 
mathematics. Kwang Sae Lee will join the philosophy de- 
partment. During the past year he has been studying at 
Yale University for his doctorate degree. Joining the chem- 
istry department will be Dr. Paul Mitacek, Jr. Last year 
he was engaged in post-doctoral work at Pennsylvania State 

Completing I lie list of the new faculty are four more 
men previously announced in the April and July issues of 
About Bucknell. They are Dr. William H. Harbaugh. pro- 
fessor and chairman of the Department of History; Dr. 
James D. Hardy, assistant professor of history; Dr. Robert 
Minshall, assistant professor of German; and Dr. Gerald 
Cooke, assistant professor of religion and chaplain for 
the University. 


Dr. Cyrus Karraker, professor of history, served the 
cause of migrant children in two important ways this sum- 
mer. In July he was selected as consultant to the National 
Workshop on Migrant Education held at Adams State Col- 
lege in Colorado, and took charge of the Day Care section 
of the program. Also, he is appointed consultant to the 
National Committee for the Day Care of Children for its 
new project. Day Care for Migrant Children. 


Miss Joan H. Corell has been appointed assistant dean of 

SEl'TEMBEIi 1962 

women. In her new post she will serve as head resident of 
Hunt Hall with the special responsibility of counseling wo- 
men students. 

Miss Corell is a graduate of College, and last 
year she was resident assistant at Indiana Lniversity while 
earning her Master of Science degree in Guidance and Per- 



Renovation and enlargement of Bucknell University's 
observatory came to an abrupt halt this summer when one 
of the tower walls suddenly collapsed. 

Except for the replacement of the dome, it was planned 
originally to keep the observatory intact, while the labora- 
tory and office located on each side of the tower were 
scheduled to be torn down and replaced by enlarged faci.i- 
ties including faculty offices, a dark room, rest rooms, a 
special project laboratory, and a general purpose laboratory. 

The original observatory was completed in 1887 and 
was the fifth building on the campus. At the time it was 
built, it offered unrestricted vision for the student astrono- 
mers, but trees and dormitory buildings have become a 
source of trouble for student astronomers. For many years 
dormitory lights have reflected on the telescope lens and 
have proved to be a considerable source of irritation to 
teachers and students using the facility. 

Plans are underway to find a new location for the ob- 
servatory. The telescope and other equipment used in the 
building are in good condition and will be used wherever 
the observatory is located. 

(Continued on Page 31) 

John S. Gold '18, professor oj astronomy and mathematics, may lie 
asking himself, "What happened???," as he looks at the collapsed 
wall of the observatory tower. 



WHEN the end of the 1961-1962 cluh year rolled around 
on June 30. 1962, a splendid record of club activity 
was very much in evidence. A record number of forty-five 
clubs reported eighty-seven meetings. And, don't overlook 
the fact that these totals do not include weekly or monthly 
luncheons held by clubs in Pittsburgh. Philadelphia. Scran- 
ton, and New York. 

The lion's share of the credit for last year's successful 
club program must go to the more than 250 club officers 
in the seventy clubs spread from coast to coast. These 
volunteers worked long and hard on a variety of programs 
that brought Bucknell to Bucknellians and on at least one 
occasion took Bucknellians to Bucknell. Also, we cannot 
fail to recognize the fine job turned in by many of the 
Bucknell faculty and staff who spoke at club meetings and 
insured the success of these affairs. 

Already, the club program for the 1962-1963 year is 
off to a flying start. As this is written, six alumni clubs 
have held a variety of meetings with thirteen others listed 
as planning to hold dinners, freshman receptions, dances, 
and Bison Roundups. 

The following are brief reports of some of the meetings 
held since July 1. 1962: 


Bill Ocker '57 presided at the club meeting held at Ed- 
mund Meany Hotel in Seattle on July 3 (Pennsylvania Day 
at Seattle World's Fair ) . Buck Shott '22. alumni secretary, 
was the speaker. Elected president was Mrs. Edward D. 
Vierling I Jane L. Craig '52 ) . Selected to serve on the 
executive committee were Mr. and Mrs. H. William Ocker 
(Kathryn Griess '57), Dr. and Mrs. Gary C. V. Gawain '47 
(Janet Gardner '48), with several others to be appointed 
later by Bill Ocker, retiring president. 

On May 5, 1962, members and guests of the Bucknell Alumni Club 
of Harrisburg chartered a bus to Bucknell to attend the Spring Festi- 
val Week End activities. President, H. Keith Eisaman '42 made the 
arrangements lor this unique club outing. 


About forty Bucknellians — plus umpteen young Buck- 
nellian-to-be offspring — greeted Trix and Buck Shott '22 
on their first visit to that club area on Sunday, July 8. 
Sandy Sanger '47. and his gracious wife were host and 
hostess to the group at their beautiful new home in Menlo 
Park. Calif. Classes from 1907 to 1961 were represented 
at the party. 


Capt. D. M. Wisehaupt '28 served as master of cere- 
monies when the Bucknellians in Southern California en- 
tertained Trix and Buck Shott in Los Angeles on July 11. 
Joie Barr Hardie '48, in the absence of husband George '49 
I who was flying home from Hawaii), made the arrange- 
ments for the dinner which was held at Julie's in Los An- 
geles. Buck Shott spoke to the 26 Bucknellians and their 
guests on the topic, "Bucknell is the Same, but Different." 


The annual picnic for undergraduates and Alumni was 
held at Norm Davies' '26 farm on Sunday, August 5. The 
Davies' wonderful hospitality is extended each year to mem- 
bers of the Bucknell family, and young and old alike enjoy 
the fine swimming pool. Pete Pedrick '60 was chairman 
for the affair. 


Bucknellians in the Phoenix area gathered to greet Buck 
and Trix Shott at dinner on July 16 at the Executive House 
Arizonian in Scottsdale. Jud Bunnell "52. President of the 
alumni club and genial manager of Scottsdale Country Club 
Resort, presided at the meeting. Surprise visitors to the 
club meeting were Mr. and Mrs. Warren (Bud) Lewis '42 
of Rochester, N. Y. Mrs. E. Martin White (Orianna Wil- 
liams 1*93 ) unable to attend because of illness, sent the 
following poem to be read in her behalf: 

The Civil War had ended some seven years before 
I opened my infant eyes to gaze on this territorial shore 
Yet I seem to have some memory of that carnival of gore. 
(Mamma had three cousins that came back from Libby 

Prison, old men at 21 1 
And memory is strong in me since the early age of four. 
For I knew that Grant was President and shouted for 

him too. 
Then shouted louder yet for Hayes, waved Red and White 

and Blue. 
For my father and my mother kept in touch with world 

And told them to their children with an interest immense. 
For papa was a preacher (which accounts for much you 

know ) ,

two years and later earned her A.B. degree in

HAROLD N. COLE, M.D., was the recipient 
of a special honor when he was presented with 
the 1962 Alumni Award of the Western Re- 
serve University Medical Alumni Association 
in recognition of his distinguished career as a 
physician, scholar and revered teacher. Con- 
gratulations, Harold, you have brought honor 
and eminence to your profession. 

We will all be sorry to hear of the death of 
burgh. Death resulted from complications fol- 
lowing a fractured hip suffered April 28 in a 
fall in his home. Maurice was born in Pitts- 
burgh and, after earning the A.B. degree in 
1906, entered the University of Pittsburgh 
Medical School which awarded him the M.D. 
degree in 1909. In 1911 he earned the Master 
of Arts degree at Bucknell. He founded the 


Department of Radiology at Montefiore Hospi- 
tal in 1912 and served as chief of radiology 
until 1956 when he retired as a consultant. 
From 1957 until 1960. Dr. Goldsmith was chief 
of radiology at the Pittsburgh Regional Office 
of the Veterans Administration. 

An outstanding football player at both Buck- 
nell and the University of Pittsburgh, he 
served on athletic councils at both universities, 
was team physician and a 50-year member of 
the varsity lettermen's club at Pitt. In 1958 
he was honored by the Bison Club of Bucknell 
for his athletic achievements in both football 
and basketball while a student at the Univer- 
sity. He is survived by his wife, the former 
Liura Schultz; a son; and four daughters, in-

Of the corporal's guard we expected to show 
for our fifty-fifth only three appeared: BUZZ 
truly. Caroline and VERA supported us; 
George nobly bore the flag in the parade to 
the alumni luncheon, and we all enjoyed the 
Emeri:us Club meeting, which PEG PANG- 
BURN MATHIAS '08, has duly reported to 
y'all. Vera and I were touched at the large 
number of friends and former students who 
remembered us (I was at Bucknell, with some 
interruptions, from 1903 to 1936), but we did 
not get much news! So I'll make it short this 
time. After all, we ain't no spring chickens no 
more. And 94% Florida heat and humidity is 
not conducive to imaginative writing.

After many years as a research chemist. Dr. 
ELMER K. BOLTON, trustee of Bucknell 
University, has made his mark as a movie per- 
sonality. In a new 30-minute colcr movie, 
produced by the duPont Company, Dr. Bolton 
is interviewed by diet Huntley of NBC News. 
The movie is entitled "A Report on duPont 
Elastomers." For those of us unfamiliar with 
the word "elastomers," it means synthetic rub- 
bers. Dr. Bolton was one of the first men 
responsible for the development of the raw 
materials used in the synthetic rubber indus- 
try. Some of the raw materials produced by 
duPont as synthetics are neopreme, adipreme. 
viton, and hypalon. Dr. Bolton retired in 1951 
from the duPont Company. He and his wife, 
the former MARGUERITE DUNCAN TO, live 
at 2310 W. 11th St., Wilmington 5, Del. 

Dr. JOHN C. HOSTETTER died at his 
home in Winter Park, Fla., on April 3, 1962. 
Born in Williamsport in 1886, he was graduat- 
ed from Bucknell with the B.S. degree in 
chemical engineering in 1908, followed by the 
Master of Science degree in chemical engineer- 
ing in 1909, and the Chemical Engineering 
degree in 1930. He did post-graduate work at 
the University of Chicago and was awarded the 
honorary Doctor of Science degree by Buck- 
nell in 1936 and by Alfred University in 1937. 

Before retiring in 1950 to take up residence 
in Florida, he had been president of the Mis- 
sissippi Glass Co., and chairman of the board 
rf the Walsh Refractories Co., both of St. 
Louis, Mo. John was a ceramic world figure 
and internationally recognized as a chemical 
engineer. Everyone in his field of interest 
liked and admired him tremendously. His 
many accomplishments are listed in his biogra- 
phies included in WHO'S WHO IN AMER- 

OF SCIENCE. He taught at Bucknell for sev- 
eral years, then became an assistant chemist 
in the Bureau of Standards at Washington. D. 
C. Later he was chemist in the Geophysical 
Laboratory of Carnegie Institute in Washing- 
ton, D. C. 

He was a member of the staff of the War 
Industries Board in 1918 and the following 
year returned to private industry as assistant 
manager of the Steuben Division of Corning 
Glass Works, Corning, N. Y. He later became 
vice president and director of research for the 
Hartford Empire Co., Hartford, Conn., and in 
1943 he became president of Mississippi Glass. 

He won the Howard N. Potts Medal from 
the Franklin Institute for his part in produc- 
ing the 200-inch mirror of the world's largest 
telescope in the observatory of the California 
Institute of Technology. 

His contributions to Bucknell were many. 
Always an outstanding student, he became a 
member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, served 
as a teacher, was elected to the Board of Trus- 
tees in 1939 and soon thereafter became a 
Patron of the University. In 1909 he marired 
the former Ida M. Fisher who preceded him in 
death in 1958. He is survived by his son, 
JOHN R. HOSTETTER '34. Winter Park, 
Fla., to whom heartfelt condolences are ex-

We regret to report that GILBERT LYTE 
has not been well for the past year. He has 
been in and out of the hospital but is not now 
bedfast. He is homebound except for visits to 
his doctor every four or five days. He is not 
able to have company but, no doubt, would be 
pleased to receive letters and cards from class- 
mates and friends. His address: 731 68th

_ IOLA QUANDT writes from California, 
"This big house and yard are really too much 
for us, and we should move into smaller quar- 
ters but we just don't feel able to eliminate 
everything but what we would need in a small 
place. We do have some antiques in the attic 
for which no one else in the family has room, 
so I guess we'll have to struggle on, get rid of 
50 years of accumulated trash and see what 
happens. This is really a valuable property 
now. Too valuable for us to live in." 

No trip North for the Headlands this sum- 
mer. Hence, they missed sorry to say, many 
affairs of great interest to them: Commence- 
ments, five — Howard's 56th at Slippery Rock, 
his 53rd at Grove City, Sarah's 53rd at Buck- 
nell (ah, me!), a grandson's graduation from 
Mt. Lebanon High School, a daughter's at Car- 
negie Tech (Master of Library Science) and 
that same daughter's silver wedding anniver- 

There were, however, two events that they 
enjoyed in St. Pete. First, the Bucknell Alum- 
ni Club luncheon in June where they met 
Prof. J. Ben Austin and his attractive wife, 
Sally. Later in the day they also met their 
three lovely children and Sally's parents. Sec- 
ond, the 42nd National Convention of the Wo- 
men's Overseas Service League of which Sarah 
is a charter member. As she in years past has 
attended many of these conventions it was for 
her a happy reunion with old-time friends. 

A report recently released in Washington 
says: "Americans of 65 and older figure in 35,- 
000 marriages a year." In line with that state- 
ment we were happily surprised last April by 
a visit from ANSLEY CLAYPOOLE and his 
bride of four months, the former Miss Eva 


Jane Frayer, of Middletown, Ohio. She had 
been a girlhood chum of the first Mrs. Clay- 
poole — 52 and more years ago in Vandergrift. 
where the then Miss Lillian Reid was a teach- 
er in the public schools. Ansley must be 
favored by the God of Good Health as for the 
past 13 years he has been chaplain at Beyer 
Memorial Hospital in Ypsilanti, Mich. He 
reported that the day before they left on their 
long trek to Florida he visited 124 patients 
and conducted a funeral service. They were 
accompanied by his daughter and husband, 
Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Ridenoeur. 
For the Jet Age or Any Age 
"Some folks in looks take so much pride 
They don't think much of what's inside; 
Well, as for me, I know my face 
Can ne'er be made a thing of grace 
And so I rather think I'll see 
How I can fix the inside of me; 
So folk'll say, 'He looks like sin 
But ain't he beautiful within!'"

With deep regret do we note the passing of 
NEWTON R. QUINTIN on March 3, 1962, at 
his home in West Chester. At graduation he 
was awarded the degree of B.S. in C.E. and 
thereafter he was engaged in sanitary engi- 
neering, tunnel construction, railroad valua- 
tion accounting, and the U. S. Postal Service. 
During World War I he was regimental ser- 
geant-major in the U. S. Army stationed at 
Camp Humphreys, Va. He retired March 30, 
1956, and gave his leisure time to his several 
hobbies. To Mrs. Quintin his classmates ex- 
tend sincere symoathv in her loss. 

WINNIE DICKSON Hardgrove is off again 
on another 55-day tour, this time to the Scan- 
dinavian countries, Russia, and the Holy 
Lands with brief stops in some of the Euro-

good flying and happy motoring! 

GEORGE T. STREET has within the last 
few months been appointed a district repre- 
sentative of the American Association of Re- 
tired Persons by its president. Dr. Ethel Percy 
Andrus. The AARP operates in conjuncton 
with the National Retired Teachers' Associa- 
tion and offers to its members many attractive 
advantages as to health, welfare, and travel. 
It is George's mission to organize new chap- 
ters in Eastern Pennsylvania, largely a volun- 
teer job. When the AARP-NRTA Convention 
was held in Denver, Colo., this past spring 
and district representatives were expected to 
attend, the Streets all decided to add a few 
more miles and a few more weeks and go on 
to California for another visit with relatives 
and another peek at the canyons — Zion, Bryce, 
and Grand — en route. They arrived home just 
in time for another alumni reunion in Lewis- 
burg. One more plan in the Streets' travel 
book is a "study fortnight" for senior citizens 
(NRTA people in charge) at New Paltz, 
N. Y.— a State Teachers College, July 8-22. 

The Sholls, the Kresges, the Streets, "Mike" 
McDonough and "Heine" Bank represented our

Lewisburg early in June.

The following is the result of our cla^~ elec- 
tion held on the Bucknell campus, June 1, 2, 
and 3, 1962. The officers elected to serve five- 
year terms are: Mrs. Maze Callahan House- 
knecht, president, secretary and reporter; H.

As Alberta said in her introduction in our 
45th Reunion Book, "And so — on to the Fif- 
tieth! Let's make it the youngest, (he gayest, 
the happiest Fiftieth Reunion my class ever 
had." According to the nice warm apprecia- 
tive letters I have received I believe it was a 
grand success. 

Our class dinner held at the Hotel Lewis- 
burger Friday evening was a delightful affair. 
After the invocation by FRED IGLER, forty- 
four of us sat down to a delicious meal. After 

dinner a few words from JIM HARRIS, the 
introduction of all present, then remarks from 
all the classmates made this a very informal 

Saturday morning found us in the Olin 
Science Building for a class meeting. At this 
time the regalia was distributed, also the re- 
union book. The cover depicting "Bucknell 
fifty years ago and now" received favorable 
comments. A list of the deceased members 
was read, then a reverent moment of silence 
followed by prayer by HOWARD JOHNSON. 

Then we arranged ourselves, powdered our 
noses, put on our best for our class picture. 
Just give us a second look. Then the trek to 
the Davis Gymnasium for the All-Alumni 
Luncheon. This too was most enjoyable. All 
were delighted to have the get-together in 
Larison Hall living room — a familiar domicile 
— our old dining room. The place where we 
held our meeting was where I had sat at Miss 
Wrigley's table during my senior year. In my 
opinion the classmates looked younger, more 
relaxed, seemed freer from responsibilities 
than they did at our 45th in 1957. No one 
talked about his ailments which reminds me of 
the poem Howard Johnson read at the class 

There's nothing whatever the matter with me 
I'm just as healthy as I can be. 
I have arthritis in both my knees, 
And when I talk I talk with a wheeze. 
My pulse is weak and my blood is thin 
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in. 
My teeth, eventually, will have to come out. 
And I can't hear a word unless you shout. 
I'm overweight and I can't get thin — 
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in. 
Arch supports I have for my feet 
Or I wouldn't be able to walk down the street. 
Sleep is denied me every night. 
And ever) - morning I'm really a sight ! 
My memory is bad and my head's in a spin 
And I practically live on aspirin! 
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in. 
The moral is, as this tale unfolds 
That for you and me. who are growing old 
It's better to say "I'm Fine." with a grin, 
Than to let people know the shape we're in! 

To sum it all up from our Fiftieth 

We're fine for the shape we're in.

Clearwater, Fla. 

FRED B. IGLER '12. reports an interesting 
visit this past winter with HARRY X. KELLY 
in New Orleans, La., during which visit they 
toured the city and had luncheon at Antoines. 
Harry is chairman of the executive committee 
of the Delta Line of the Mississippi S. S. 
Navigation Company which plies big ships be- 
tween South America and Africa. 

Our secretary CHARLIE SANDERS in- 
formed me that 13 were present at our 49th 
and SHAFFER. He also gave the following 
information: Living members — 57; Deceased 
— 54: Lost — 19. Speaking as a minister, Char- 
lie, I regret that any of our class is numbered 
among the lost. 

Next June, 50 years will have passed since 
we were handed our diplomas. Half of our 
classmates will not answer the reunion call for 
they have finished their course on earth. But 
they will be in the cloud of witnesses. If we 
the living are still around in June we should 
be thankful that the good Lord has spared our 


lives. Let us, therefore, the living highly re- 
solve and plan to attend our golden class re- 

I received an interesting letter from RICH- 
ARDS. I asked his permission to share with 
all Bucknellians what he wrote me about our 
own BOB ROOKE. He wrote, "In my opinion 
Bob is one of the outstanding Alumni of Buck- 
nell. He has been on the Bucknell Board of 
Trustees for over 30 years and has been secre- 
tary of the Board for 15 years or more. In all

generously to Bucknell. He has been a major 
contributor to restoring 'Old Main' and to 
building Davis Gymnasium, and has contrib-

probably know that he has given half of the

money for the Freas-Rooke Computing Center 
in the Engineering School — and with it all lit-

Your secretary is now living in Clearwater, 
Fla., with his brother, JOHN, who attended 
Bucknell Academy in the days of CHRISTY 
MATHEWSON '02. The Yankees are still not 
very popular down here. A story is told about 
a white family that moved North. The chil- 
dren were sent to an integrated school. When 
they returned home at the close of their first 
day in the integrated school their parents 
asked how they got along with the negro chil- 
dren. They replied, "Fine, we ate with them!" 
"Ate with them!" the parents shouted. "Yes," 
replied the children, "you don't think we ate 
with those darn Yankees."

Dr. Norman Stewart wrote us this card back 
in May. "Forty-eight years ago we liked your 
name 'Eric' and adopted it for our baby. This 
week end his son. Richard, was here to ar- 
range for his entrance into Bucknell this fall. 
Tempus fugit, but not our memories." Well 
do I remember the event! I reckon Dr. Stew- 
art was the favorite of most of us. 

MABEL BOYER Parks '15, was a St. Pete 
visitor early in the year. We visited with her 
and her husband at the Wigwam Hotel. He i- 
a retired college professor now busy with busi- 
ness chores. He used to come down from 
State to court Mabel on week ends. 

We have made the acciuaintance of the Rev- 
erend WILLIAM McKEE '40, who has just 
assumed the pastorate of the Woodlawn Pres- 
byterian Church of this city. He was unable 
to attend our June Alumni Club meeting. We 
surprised all with a fine attendance at that 
meeting when Professor Austin of the Univer- 
sity gave a splendid talk. 

DR. WOODRUFF '90. our next door neigh- 
bor all winter, died on May 9. We got him 
out to the next to last alumni meeting and the 
fine old man stole the show with a nifty little 
speech. We will miss him. He was our oldest 
living Alumnus, you will recall. 

Had dinner with JOHN HARRIS and his 
wife a short while back. We attend the same 
church and in that way get together for a 
meal. He says brother STAN '18. now lives at 
Cape Coral. Fla. John recounted his doings 
at his 50th in June.

During her lifetime, ELIZABETH LEHR

community activities, and she never forgot the 
benefits of her Bucknell training. We are 
pleased to announce that under her will. Buck-

come to be used for scholarship and student 
aid of needy, but qualified, students, as a 
memorial to her only son. John Lehr Mc-

training accident during World War II. 

Just after I had sent my notes in for the 
May issue. I received a note from GEORGE 
CHAMPION. He had just returned from a 
three-month Shasta Travel Trailer trip seeing 
Florida. "We have decided that Naples is the 
place, and we have an apartment with a water- 
way in the front and the gulf across the street 
and a block away the golf course and a cruiser 
in the front yard — swim in the gulf across the 
street — what more could we want?" So he 
was here to sell his home and move to "Para- 
dise." Sounds wonderful! He did stay up 
here for a while and came to the reunion. It 
was good to see him. His new address will be 
Ocean Terrace Club. Golf Shore Drive, Naples, 

IRVIN SOWERS was back and told me they 
had a fine trip last year to Europe for 8 weeks. 
It was a lifetime hope fulfilled and enjoyed. 
So glad they could take it. Marion (Mrs. S.) 
has been in the hospital for an operation since 


the reunion. She is getting along nicely. I'm 
glad to report. 

A notice from Philadelphia Teachers Asso- 
ciation said their annual dinner was a big suc- 
cess. "The musicians with Pat Giacomo and 
the humor of PSEA's GENE BERTIN (guest 
speaker I all contributed to a delightful meet- 

Now I want to give a word of thanks to 
OLIVE MOORE and PUD and Lorraine MEL- 
LINGER for their nice notes sent after they 
received the minutes of our reunion. We 
missed them. They attended the 40th. Pud 
had a bad year, in and out of the hospital sev- 
eral times. Lorraine says he's pretty good 
now and at that minute was out picking bee- 
tles off the flowers. We're so glad he's better. 
Now for goodness sakes keep well all of you 
so we can have a great big 50th. It will be 
here before you know it.

Attending the Pi Beta Phi Convention June

experience for me. The Pi Phis, who met at 
the MAYFLOWER in Washington, D. C, es-

House where we saw the lovely portrait of 
Grace Coolidge presented by Pi Beta Phis in 
1924. And we had a chance to admire the

This month is the start of another school 
year, wouldn't mind taking a course or two 
again myself, just for a little stimulus. Last 
winter and spring I had several letters from 
classmates, in answer to my inquiry of them- 
selves, so will now share them with you. Please 
don't wait for me to write you, there are too 
many of you, but send me news of yourselves 
and families. 

Our sincere and deepest sympathy is extend- 
ed to "Mandy," RUTH MANDEVILLE Ayde- 
lott, who lost her husband at the end of 1961, 
from a heart attack. Mandy sold her home 
and her new address is Apt. 104, 9111 Fortuna 
Dr., Mercer Island, Wash. If this information 
is not too late, and if any of you go to the 
Seattle Fair, stop and look her up. 

ERT '60, is personnel manager of Montgomery

RUTH and TED WHITE are at McDonogh 
and have been for 18 years, a fine record, Keeb 
and Ted. No matter where you go folks seem 
to know of McDonogh and we are proud you're 
connected with it. Ted teaches American his- 
tory, Keeb teaches Spanish and math, and they 
spend their summers traveling. Wonder where 
they went this summer? 

"TED" HEYSHAM was one who answered

like a busy man. At present he is president of 
the Board of Trustees of the First Baptist 
Church of Norristown, chairman of their new

of 40 members. He also plays the violin. He 
is a school director of East Norristown Town- 
ship, charter member and past president of the 
Exchange Club of Norristown, and is manager 
of Glazed Tile Sales which 2 years ago be- 
came autonomous subsidiary of the National

and BUCKNELL. Ted is active in the Phila- 
delphia Bucknell Alumni Club and is a mem- 
ber of the newly formed Bucknell University

Dr. ANDREW HENDRICKSON. director of 
the Center for Adult Education at Ohio State 
University, is working on a two-year study 
under a grant from the U. S. Office of Educa- 
tion. Andy, who completed a study last year 
of the "Educational Needs of Out-of-School- 
Youth" is directing his present study to de- 
termine the cultural and educational needs of 
older persons. Special emphasis will be given 
to persons who could be served by institutions 
of higher learning. Andy puts it this way, "As 
more persons reach retirement age in future 
years, their educational level will be higher, 
and they will have greater call on educational 
resources." The purposes of the project are to 
discover what educational services might keep 
the older population mentally alert, economi- 
cally productive and socially useful, and to 
discover among the upper educational level of 
the present population older persons of poten- 
tial educational talent who could ?«rve as staff 
resources in teaching classes or in organizing 
and administering a program for the aging. 
Sounds like a good project, Andy — something 
our own class members should be thinking

year will have started and undoubtedly many 
of you will have been busy getting your young 
people off to college. 

During the late Spring this reporter had a 
surprise visit from EUGENE M. COOK and 
NELSON WENDT. Gene was in Garden City 
on business for the Kimble Glass Co. He is 
now living at 3708 S. Beverly Hills Dr., Toledo 
14. Ohio. His daughters are married and his 
older son will soon be out of the Navy but 
Gene and his wife are enjoying young William 
who is at home with them. We did a lot of 
reminiscing about PAUL GRAHAM, GARD- 
and FRED PINOTTI— Gene sees the latter 
who is also with Kimble Glass. Incidentally, 
Gene says the latchstring is always open to 
Bucknellians who may be in the Toledo area. 


Had a nice letter from RUTH BEERS Mil- 
ler, who worked assisting our class fund man- 
ager. She tells me DICK CURNOW is now 
pastor of Jackson Street Presbyterian Church 
in Alexandria, La. Dick has five children — 
two in college and one entering this September 
and two at home. I imagine Dick must like 
the South as he was last in Charlotte, N. C, 
quite a distance from Central Pennsylvania 
which Dick used to call home. Ruth lives on 
Route 3. Bloomsburg, with her husband, Al- 
fred H., and three youngsters: Alfred, 10; 
Charles, 9; and Beth. 7. She says she gets 
over to college to concerts and that she and 
her husband were planning to hear Isaac Stern 
at Bucknell. Ruth's hubby is a violinist, too.

Hello! to everyone who did not make our 
exciting 20th Reunion in June. It was a busy, 
well-planned week end and many thanks are 
due to our past officers, President BUD EISA- 
MAN in particular, and to the Alumni Office 
staff. The campus is even more beautiful than 
in our heyday and the Blueprint for the Future 
is breathtaking. How fortunate we are that 
Bucknell's past, present, and future have been 
so well planned. Too many colleges have 
crowded, limited campuses and buildings of 
varied faces, unlike our Bucknell-Georgian 

RALPH BUSH '40, and two children took a 
modern "Grand Circle Route" back to the 
campus in June and stopped to visit five Buck-

back. Among them were JEANNE ROCK- 
WELL Noonan and husband Ed (who re- 
ceived his M.A. at Eastern Michigan Univer- 
sity), who now reside in Ann Arbor. Mich.; 
JANE COLTERYAHN Davis and John (a 

graduate of Bates College and a history pro! 
fessor at Adrian College), who are now inl 
Adrian, Mich., with their three sons. Next onl 
the route was JEANNE OFFUTT Davis and| 
husband. Bill, who live in Southboro, Mass.J 
with a family of four children. (The above!'] 
similarity of names is not co-incidental, as the j 
Davises are brothers and help bear out the it's- : 
a-small world bit.) Last stop was at the Win- 
throp, Maine, home of GAY and MARCIAI 
HART TAPPAN where the scenery is lovelyl 
and the hospitality superb. How many of us | 
include visits with five Bucknellians in our va- 1 
cation plans? It sounds like a good goal tol 
aim for.

The second semester of 1961-62 was notable for the 
practical interest students demonstrated in national and 
[world affairs. Ronald MacLachlan '63 organized an inter- 
collegiate committee in support of the President's free trade 
iprogram, meeting with top government officials in Washing- 
ton for the furtherance of his project. A second intercol- 
legiate committee originated at Bucknell under the leader- 
ship of Carol Kurtz '62, Steven Danish '63, and Barbara 
'Wolford '62 for the welfare of migrant farm youth, and 
[was given AP publicity over the East. This committee is 
composed chiefly of students of Bucknell. Swarthmore, and 
Oberlin, but has the support of a growing number of col- 
leges. Its objectives are two-fold: the raising of money 
[for scholarships to send migrant youth through colleges 
or vocational schools, and the support of legislation for 
migrant welfare. Bucknell students have already provided 
; scholarships for two students who are migrants. To achieve 
|l their second purpose, the three Bucknellians, together with 
1 Ronald Hale of Swarthmore. met with Senator Harrison 
Williams of New Jersey, who is the chief sponsor of migrant 
legislation, interviewed Congressmen, and. finally, gave tes- 
timony before the House Education and Labor Committee 
tin support of the bill to aid migrant legislation. 

Other interests of Bucknell students are manifested in 
a growing world outlook. Joan Hammer '62 joined the 
! Peace Corps, while Dorothy Schindler '64 participated this 
i summer in "Crossroads Africa," a welfare project which 
i) is led by Dr. James Robinson of New York and is not new 
;to Bucknell students. Many other students went on study 
tours of Europe this summer. Some are now planning to 
, spend their Junior Year abroad. 


The 1962-Burma-Bucknell Bowl has been presented to 
the Summer Institute for Foreign Students. 

Given to Bucknell by the President of the Union of 
Burma and his wife on the 10th anniversary of Burma- 
Bucknell Week End four years ago, the bowl is awarded 
each year to an individual or organization in the Bucknell 
family in recognition of a significant contribution to the 
'] ideal of brotherhood and good citizenship.

It is with deep regret that we inform 
you of the death of Albert E. Humph- 
reys, Director of Athletics and Chair- 
man of the Department of Physical Edu- 
cation, on June 29, 1962. 

Al, as he was affectionately known to 
thousands of Alumni and his colleagues 
on the campus, suffered a heart attack 
several years ago. but recovered nicely 
and returned to his duties at Davis Gym 
with full vigor and enthusiasm. He went 
back to the hospital for a checkup on 
June 11 and was found to be in need of 
rest. The doctors called it a "cardiac de- 
ficiency." He was improving and ex- 
pected to return home when the attack 

Born in Wolcott. Indiana, on March 
22. 1902. Al held both the B.S. ( 1927 I

Prior to coming to Bucknell as head

sical Education. 

Al also served his country as physical 
instructor in the Navy from 1943 to 
1945 advancing to the rank of Lt. Com-

athletics developed into strong and bal- 
anced programs. On Sabbatical last 
year. Al toured the nation studying 
phvsical education programs at other 
institutions of Bucknell's type. But he 
was concerned not only with a program 
— but with the individual young men for 
whom athletics offer a valuable addition 
to the intellectual and academic life of 
the University. 

He will live on in the lives of the hun- 
dreds of young men who played under 
him and who learned from him honesty, 
integrity, and respect for clean play and 
hard physical endeavor. His gruff good 
humor will be missed on the Bucknell 

He is survived by his wife. Thyra: his 
two children. Sue and Richard; and a 
brother and a sister.

later in the National Baseball League, 
died at the Lewisburg Evangelical Com- 
munity Hospital on July 11, 1962. 

Born in Philadelphia on February 28, 
1881, he was the son of the late Alexan- 
der and Mary McCormick. As an under- 
graduate at Bucknell he starred in foot- 
ball, baseball, basketball and track. In 
1903 he left the Bucknell campus to play 
professional baseball. 

During his baseball career he played 
with the New York Giants, Pittsburgh 
Pirates, and the Philadelphia Phillies. 
In all, he is credited with playing 399 
major league games. He had a lifetime 


batting average of .285. Perhaps, he is 
best known to baseball fans for his part 
in several spectacular games with the 
New York Giants. On September 23, 
1908, when the Giants and the Chicago 
Cubs were locked in a tight race for the 
National League pennant. "Moose" be- 
came involved in the now famous "Fred 
Merkle Incident." "Moose" scored the 
run that did not count when Giant Fred 
Merkle failed to touch second base. The 
game ended in a 1-1 tie and was re- 
played. Later the Cubs won the pen- 

After leaving professional baseball. 
Mr. McCormick worked as a salesman 
with the Hess Steel Company, of Balti- 
more, Md. He left this position during 
World War I and served with the 42nd 
"Rainbow Division" overseas. After the 
war he was discharged with the rank of 

In 1922 he returned to Bucknell as 
graduate manager of athletics and head 
baseball and basketball coach. In 1926 
he accepted the post of head baseball 
coach at West Point where he served 
until 1937. 

During the 1939-40 World's Fair, he 
coached baseball at an instructional ex- 
hibit and in May of 1941 returned to 
active duty with the Army Air Force, di- 
recting physical training at Mitchell 
Field until the end of the war. 

From 1947 until 1958 he was in 
charge of veteran housing at Bucknell. 

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy 
Walls McCormick F05, and a daughter, 
Mrs. Nancy McCormick Billhardt. 

This writer will never forget the many 
fascinating and delightful yarns spun by 
"Moose." His good humored banter and 
friendly insults will be missed by his 
many Alumni, faculty, and staff friends. 


The following deaths have been reported to 
the Alumni Office since April, 1962. The Uni-

THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May,

The University's non-academic religious program 
is under the guidance of the University Committee 
on Religious Program. This is a policy making 
committee which is responsible lor insuring that 
a vital and well balanced program of religious 
thought and activity is maintained. Its 
membership consists of members of the faculty 
and the administration, with Dr. Mark C. Ebersole 
as chairman. 

Bucknell imposes no religious tests upon its 
students or its faculty. It does endeavor to 
provide conditions wherein the Judeo-Christian 
tradition may be understood within the life of 
the University. The spiritual climate of the 
campus and the classrooms is such that all 
persons involved in the search for knowledge and 
understanding are able to pursue their 
investigations in freedom. 

1 1 is in keeping with the religious spirit of the 
University that education should be of the 
highest intellectual quality and tbat the search 
for truth should investigate all realms of 
existence. The University provides an excellent 
academic program for the study of religion. 







I ollege students, strange to say, are no different fron 
other people. They have their share of the "heartaches" ir 
life — careers cut short by sickness, broken romances, auto 
mobile accidents, and all of the other personal tragedies tc 
which the human race is heir. 

But college students face one "heartache" which distin- 
guishes them from all other groups of people, and that is 
the heartache of "flunking out" of college. Although they 
may pretend at the time not to care that they have failed, 
it is a rare student indeed upon whom the experience ol 
failure does not leave its mark. Some students who fail, 
of course, learn from experience and go on to achieve suc- 
cess at other institutions, or return to Bucknell, older and 
wiser, and graduate with good records. But it is just as 
true that other students never resume their studies after 
failing in their first attempt to "make the grade." 

It is precisely to avoid as much as possible the heartaches 
of failure that the Admissions Staff must wrestle with a 
number of "headaches" resulting from the necessity to choose 
a freshman class of 650 students from a stack of applica- 
tions that is growing larger every year. Last year the appli- 
cations of more than 3,700 candidates were reviewed by the 
Admissions Staff; this year the figure promises to be even 

Last year ( 1960-61 ) about 8% of the freshman class was 
dismissed for failure to achieve an acceptable academic rec- 
ord. It is expected that the rate this year will be closer to 
6%. In a survey of other colleges of approximately the same 
size as Bucknell. it was revealed that the percentage of "drop- 
outs" at Bucknell was higher than that at most of the other 
schools. This survey can be interpreted in several ways; it 
may indicate that the academic standards at Bucknell are 
higher than those of the other institutions in the survey, it 
also may indicate that some of the students who were admit- 
ted to Bucknell were either unwilling or unable to satisfy 
the academic standards required of freshmen, or it may 
be that the difference in BucknelFs drop out rate as compared 
to other colleges could be the result of the difference in policy. 


With those who were unwilling to work, we need not be 
Concerned, for failure in such cases is usually richly deserved; 
Lut the students who were actually unable to satisfy the 
icademic requirements are a just cause for concern — not 
jjnly of the Admissions Staff, but of the Alumni, the parents, 
he faculty, and the friends of prospective candidates. 

As the members of the Admissions Staff are human, like 
i.he rest of us they are not perfect, and cannot in all con- 
science be expected to make a perfect record in judging the 
merits of 3,700 candidates. Even when the staff has the 
importunity to judge students on the basis of secondary 
school records, personal interviews, College Board scores 
land alumni or trustee recommendations, there are bound to 
je a few errors in judgment. No matter how astute the 
nembers of the staff, no matter how thorough the testing. 
ao matter how exhaustive the investigation, there are always 
going to be a few students admitted to every college who are 
either mentally inadequate to satisfy the standards, or men- 
ially undisciplined and so unwilling to work. Records and 
transcripts may look impressive — but transcripts and rec- 
ords do not always reveal a student's initiative and desire 
jto succeed; College Board scores may be excellent — but sta- 
tistics have been known to lie; students with poor records 
(sometimes can do better at college than their higher-ranking 
classmates, and — human nature being what it is — it would 
be inhuman to expect a perfect judgment of qualities that 
cannot be measured by mechanical means. 

"What are his chances of success at Bucknell?" is a 
question asked by the Admissions Staff about every one of 
(the 3.700 applicants in a given year. The members of the 
"star! and the admissions committee determine the answers 
as best they can, on the basis of the student's credentials and 
their estimate of his ability and desire to succeed. 


hat IS "success" at Bucknell? In order to gradu- 
ate, a student must maintain better than a "C" average in 
the course of his four years' work. It would be well to note 
here a "C" in high school or preparatory school is not at all 
the same thing as a "C" in college. A student who works as 
hard as he can and makes "C's" in secondary school is prob- 
ably not going to be able to achieve a "C" average at Buck- 
nell. It is generally agreed that students who make "A's" 
and "B's" in secondary school will be able to achieve a 
satisfactory record at Bucknell. 

It may be "unkind"' to deny admission to candidates who 
want very much to attend Bucknell. but it is even more un- 
kind in the long run to admit students who. no matter how 
hard they work, will be unable to achieve a satisfactory 
average. The biggest "headache" of the Admissions Staff is 
to prevent, to the best of their abilities, the "heartache" of 
the student who fails through no fault of his own. It should 
suffice to note that the Admissions Staff at Bucknell is work- 
ing diligently to admit those students to Bucknell who have 

"a belter than average chance of success." in view of the 
rising academic standards. 

The following examples are supplied in order that the 
reader may review the credentials and evaluate the appli- 
cants' chances for success at Bucknell. They are five actual 
cases of alumni children who applied for admission. In 
each case, the name and personal data has been changed to 
preserve anonymity. The academic record, however, is the 
same material that was considered by the Admissions Com- 
mittee in arriving at the original decision.

Admission Case Results 

NOTE: The examples were all drawn from the applications 
submitted to Bucknell in a recent year. The Class Median 
Average of those who were admitted was 2.207 or "C" at 

the completion of the first year of work. The marking sys- 
tem at Bucknell is a four point system where 4.00=A, 3.00= 
B, 2.00=C and 1.00= D. 

BILL: You were in accord with the admissions commit- 
tee if you voted to admit Bill. He entered Bucknell, be- 
came a highly respected member of his class, participated 
in intramural sports, the dormitory council and the Pre-Med 
Society. At the end of the freshman year his average was 

JOHN: The Committee voted to admit John because of 
his fine recommendation and sense of purpose in spite of his 
low verbal score. It was decided that he had sufficient apti- 
tude in science to have average success in a science major 


ohn adjusted well to life at Bucknell. He joined a 
fraternity during the second semester and actively partici- 
pated in intramural sports. He was a valued member of 
the Mens Glee Club. Academically, John attained an aver- 
age of 2.031 for the first year. As predicted, he did better 
in science than in his other subjects and maintained a satis- 
factory average. 

WARREN: Initially the committee voted to deny ad- 
mission to Warren in view of his mathematics weakness. An 
engineering curriculum would have been impossible for him. 
However, it was believed that he might have an average 
chance for success in the Business Curriculum where higher 
mathematics is not so extensively employed. 

Warren was offered tentative admission to summer school 
with the provision that he could enroll in September if he 
made a "C" average in his summer studies. Following 
summer study. Warren entered the University in the B.S. in 
Business Administration curriculum and has encountered 
academic difficulty ever since. His average at the end of 
the freshman year was 1.537. We are still hopeful that he 
will "pull through" successfully, but it will take continued 
concentrated effort on his part. 

SUSAN: Susan had academic difficulties from the first 
week at school. She had never competed against such a 
highly selected college caliber group of students before. The 
necessity to work harder and study longer than the other 
girls, finally became too much for her and she was dropped 
for academic failure at the end of her freshman year. Her 
average was 1.219. Here is an example of "Heartache" that 
probably should have been avoided by initial denial of 
admission by the Admissions Committee. 

ALICE: Of course, there is no question that Alice was 
admitted. She adjusted well to college life maintaining 
excellence in both academic and extracurricular work. It 
might be noted, however, that even a girl of Alice's ability 
had to budget time more carefully and limit her extracurricu- 
lar activities to two. Her average was one of the highest in 
her class at the end of the freshman vear. a 3.333. 


A New Bucknell Generation 


THE CLASS OF 1966 includes many second and third 
generation students from Bucknell families and this 
annual feature of THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS pictures 
the fifty-five sons and daughters who have Bucknell moth- 

''Sqiiare that dink Frosh" 

ers and dads. A total of forty-three alumni fathers anc 
twenty-three alumni mothers are listed. If you are quid 
to note an error in our addition, you will learn as you 
look at this handsome group that some freshmen have two 
Bucknell parents. 

Not including the freshmen who have Bucknell par- 
ents, there are at least seventy-four members of the Class 
of 1966 who listed on their applications 212 Bucknell 
relatives. These relatives include: 15 grandfathers, 
grandmothers, 49 uncles, 27 aunts, 22 brothers, 26 sis- 
ters, 4 brothers-in-law, 2 sisters-in-law, 56 cousins, and 
5 more distant relationships. And, so goes the story 
year after year as generation after generation of Bucknell 
students select Bucknell as its Alma Mater. 

Do you have a son or daughter, grandson or grand- 
daughter, niece or nephew, or perhaps a cousin who thinks 
Bucknell may be the college for him or her and who some- 
day may be pictured here as a member of a Bucknell 
freshman class? If so, don't fail to read the article on 
page 2 entitled ''Headache or Heartache." It will give 
you some valuable insight into the careful selection of a 
freshman class at Bucknell. 

The pictures and information on Bucknell freshmen 
and their Bucknell parents used in this article have been 
obtained from student applications and other material 
forwarded to the University during the summer. We hope! 
it is complete. If we have missed any Bucknell son orj 
daughter in this year's freshman class, please write the I 
editor, and we will correct the omission in a forthcoming! 
issue of your alumni magazine. 

Also, this year, there are seven transfer students with 
twelve Bucknell relatives including two students having 
Bucknell dads. They are: Peter S. Farrow '65, son of] 
Charles E. Farrow '26, and Letty J. Roush '65, daughter 
of Jack D. Roush MS' 19.

The Student Vieiv 

by Bonni Vasilawsky '64 


WE lay aside our summer togs to don our academic 
robes. We greet old friends and meet new ones. As 
upperclassmen (and Alumni) we feel it is our prerogative 
to scrutinize the most recent addition to our campus — the 

, freshmen. We watch them from our rooms, mingle with 
them at meals, joke with them at Chefs, and direct them 
to their assigned classes. We are like parents who have 

I adopted a child: loving and proud hut restrained and civil 
lest he discover his importance to us and overstep his des- 
ignated position. The academic quality of each incoming 

J class increases, and with it increases our esteem for them 

; and our pride in Bucknell. 

However, one cannot expect 675 eighteen-year-old stran- 
gers to feel "at home" in a dormitory on a hill. The care- 
ful planning by the Class of 1965 (this year's sophomore 
class), has eased the freshmen into the Bucknell circle and 
has introduced them to various Bucknell customs through 
a revised hazing program. The following is a modification 
of the hazing rules printed in the Freshman Handbook: 

The Law 

1. Freshman men and women shall wear name signs 
(8"xl0") , front and back, and class dinks at all times . . . 

2. Small name signs, included with registration material, 
shall be worn at all times for a two-week period follow- 
ing freshman initiation. 

3. Freshman men shall wear black ties . . . 

4. The "hello spirit" is one of Bucknell's finest traditions. 
Freshmen shall speak to everyone at all times, and they 
will receive a response. 

5. All freshmen shall learn all songs and cheers in the 
Freshman Handbook and shall be able to sing and cheer 
when called upon at any time during freshman initia- 
tion. No upperclassman may detain freshmen from 
arriving on time for classes. 

6. Freshmen shall keep off the grass at all times. 

7. Freshmen are not permitted to wear athlete's letters or 
insignia from other colleges or high schools. 

8. Freshman women shall wear no make-up Thursday . . . 

9. Freshman men shall wear a white shirt and black tie 
and shall carry gum to be distributed on Thursday . . . 

10. The Gettysburg pep rally is compulsory . . . 

11. Dinks and name signs are compulsory for admission 
to the Gettysburg football game . . . 

12. At the Gettysburg game, the freshmen shall form two 
lines between which the football team will run onto the 

13. Freshmen not abiding by the rules shall appear before 
the Freshman Rules Committee . . . 

14. Only the rules as established above shall be enforced. 
Any abuse of these rules by upperclassmen shall also 
be reprimanded by the Freshman Rules Committee. 

It is obvious the purpose of hazing is not merely to harass 
the freshmen, but it is to make them aware of Bucknell 

The atmosphere that develops from hazing is one of 
congeniality rather than of hostility. The upperclassmen 
do not try to embarrass these novice scholars but do try 
to put them at ease. We make them sing, we ask them 
for gum, and, in return, we call them by name when we 
say "hi," and we make them our friends, for they chose our 
University as their University. 

To the high school senior, the thought of hazing seems 
a nightmare. To the freshman, it is a humorous dream. 
To the Alumnus, hazing is an experience that is recaptured 
partially through reminiscence. From all indications, this 
year's hazing program attained its goals of instilling a feel- 
ing of class unity in the freshmen and of maintaining Buck- 
nell's traditions. 

It is November now, and most of the freshmen's inhi- 
bitions and misconceptions have been dispelled. We have 
settled down to Bucknell "family life" with the only differ- 
ence being that now our latest arrivals, the freshmen, are 
aware of our fondness, understanding, and deep respect 
for their capabilities. It is also now that the freshman 
class can comprehend the intensity of the statement from 
the Freshman Handbook, ". . . ultimately, Bucknell is more 
than an idea, than a way of life — it is a matter of the heart." 


Distinguished Teachers On Campus 


Vice President for Academic Affairs 

Dr. EBERSOLE joined the 
Bucknell faculty in 1953, as as- 
sistant professor of religion, and 
two years later was appointed 
associate professor of religion 
and chaplain of the University. 
Since then he has been profes- 
sor and chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Religion, assistant dean 
of the University, dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences 
and. in June of this year, was 
promoted to his present posi- 
tion. Although now removed from the classroom, recent 
graduates will long remember his inspirational teaching. 
During the academic year 1961-62 he was awarded the Class 
of 1956 Lectureship. The Class of 1957, in dedicating its 
yearbook to him, also paid tribute to him as a "stimulating 
teacher." He is author of numerous articles and a book 
entitled Christian Faith and Man's Religion published in 
1961. As chief academic officer he will, among other things, 
be responsible for the continued high quality of teaching of 
which he is a prime example. 



Professor of Psychology 

Dr. Harriman, professor of 
psychology, and one of the 
University's best known teach- 
ers and scholars was awarded 
for the year 1961-62 a Lind- 
back award for distinguished 
teaching. He needs little intro- 
duction to the thousands of 
Alumni who have enjoyed his 
classes. He arrived at Bucknell 
in 1930 from North Carolina 
College and was appointed pro- 
fessor in the Department of 
Psychology. Since this time he has been chairman of the 
department and has represented his colleagues on many 
University committees. Unfortunately, space does not per- 
mit us to list the numerous books and articles he has writ- 
ten or the many honors bestowed upon him. An authority 
in his field, he is a member of many professional societies 
and is an advisory editor in psychology for the Encyclopedia 
Americana. The Lindback award is evidence of the esteem 
and admiration with which he is associated on the campus. 

Professor of Political Science 

Dr. Gathings, chairman of 
the Department of Political Sci- 
ence, has been honored with 
both the Lindback and the Class 
of 1956 Lectureship awards for 
distinguished teaching. Widely 
known by Alumni. Dr. Gath- 
ings has been at Bucknell since 
L932, and he has earned an en- 
viable reputation as a teacher 
and scholar whose activities 
have included a deep interest in 
both student and faculty affairs. 
Throughout the state he is held in high regard for his 
astute commentary on the political scene. Perhaps the 
Class of 1951 in dedicating its yearbook to him, best sums 
up the greatness of this man. In part the editor said. 
'"Whether he is making political science come alive in the 
class or moving to another room while a freshman fire- 
side takes over his living room, Dr. Gathings has always 
typified the spirit of student faculty cooperation of which 
we at Bucknell are especially proud." 


Professor of Chemistry 

In 1948, Dr. Heine was ap- 
pointed assistant professor of 
chemistry at Bucknell, and since 
then he has advanced rapidly to 
the rank of full professor and 
has distinguished himself as one 
of Bucknell's outstanding teach- 
ers. In 1962 he was honored by 
the University and awarded the 
Class of 1956 Lectureship for 
distinguished teaching. But. like 
many great teachers. Dr. Heine 
also is interested in research, 
received many grants to carry on his research 
from both governmental agencies and industry 
and has published uncounted articles in the chemical jour- 
nals. He has clone special research off campus and only this 
summer returned from a year in Germany where he collab- 
orated with German scientists in a study of the chemistry 
of small ring compounds, a field in which he has been 
interested for several years. Many of the compounds he 
has developed are now being tested by the National Institutes 
of Health in Washington as part of its cancer research. 

He has 




Lindback and Class of 1956 
Awards for Distinguished Teachin 



Professor of Classics 

What's pat in the Latin or 
I chic in the Greek this writer 
always distinguishes more clear- 
ly in English, but such is not 
the case with Dr. Miller. He 
has taught both Greek and 
Latin at Bucknell since his ap- 
pointment as associate profes- 
sor in 1949 and, undoubtedly, 
he has done it well. In 1958-59 
he was the recipient of the Class 
of 1956 Lectureship and in 
1960-61 he received the Lind- 
back award for distinguished teaching. He has received 
numerous other scholarships and awards from such schools 
as Duke University and Johns Hopkins University. Not 
only has he passed on to his Bucknell students his knowl- 
edge of the classics, but he has helped many others to an 
understanding of them through publication of articles in 
journals and magazines. 


Professor of History 

With limited space and so 
much to say about this man. it 
is difficult to know where to be- 
gin. After 29 years of teach- 
ing at Bucknell. he needs no 
introduction to most Alumni. 
Dr. Oliphant. former chairman 
of the Department of History 
and now relieved from active 
teaching to work on a special 
assignment for President Odg- 
ers, has been the recipient of 
both the Lindback and Class of 
1956 Lectureship awards. His scholarly pursuits, his out- 
standing leadership, and his contributions to the teaching 
profession have brought him many awards and honors from 
other universities and organizations. He is a distinguished 
writer, having published several books and numerous arti- 
cles in historical journals and magazines. His contributions 
to the University and Bucknell students have been many. 
Presently. Dr. Oliphant serves as University Archivist, pre- 
serving for eternity the records of Bucknell. This man has 
placed his mark on our Alma Mater and so let this fact be 
recorded for all to remember. 


Professor of Chemistry 

Dr. Smith was the first re- 
cipient of the Class of 1956 Lec- 
tureship and. this year, was 
given the Lindback award for 
distinguished teaching. Since 
1946, when he was appointed 
an assistant professor of chem- 
istry, Dr. Smith has demon- 
strated his talent both in the 
classroom and in the labora- 
tory. Although teaching is fore- 
most, research in a variety of j 
areas has commanded an im- 
portant part of his life. During the academic year 1960-61, 
he studied abroad participating in a cooperative research 
program with Swedish scientists studying the reaction be- 
tween periodic acid and certain organic structures called 
phenols. To accomplish this work, he was awarded a Na- 
tional Science Foundation Faculty Fellowship. He has 
written papers for publication in chemical journals and 
for several years has been assisting the U. S. Department 
of Interior in its effort to find an economical and effective 
compound to eradicate the sea lamprey in the Great Lakes. 


Professor of Electrical Engineering, Emeritus 

A fitting tribute on the 
occasion of Professor Irland's 
retirement this year was the 
awarding to him the Lindback 
award for distinguished teach- 
ing. Dr. Irland, a member of 
the Class of 1915. retired from 
the teaching profession at Buck- 
nell this past June after 42 years 
of outstanding service to his 
Alma Mater. He joined the 
Bucknell faculty in 1920 as an 
instructor in mechanical draw- 
ing and electrical engineering and served as a professor 
of electrical engineering from 1938 to his retirement. For- 
tunately for the citizens of Lewisburg, his retirement from 
the teaching profession does not mean he has retired from 
the active life he always has enjoyed. In February, 1962, 
he was elected president of the Citizen's Electric Company, 
and if past performance is any measuring stick, the Citi- 
zen's Electric Company has a bright future.

Bison Teams on the Victory Trail 

by Bradley N. Tufts 
Sports Information Director 

TAKE away two or three seconds in one game and the 
Bisons would have been undefeated going into the 
Homecoming game with Lafayette on October 20th. Those 
few seconds were all that the University of Massachusetts 
needed to throw a touchdown pass that beat Coach Bob 
Odell's team in the third game of the season. 21-20. 

In the other three starts the Bisons won three Middle 
Atlantic Conference games, coming from behind to defeat 
Gettysburg and Temple by one point and routing Lehigh. 

There certainly isn't much to say about the way Bucknell 
played its first 30 minutes of football as Gettysburg took a 
21-0 lead at half-time in the season opener, but after that 
things went much better. 

On the first play of the second half in that game, senior 
quarterback Bon Giordano, the new passing wizard of the 
MAC and one of the nation's leading passers this season, 
intercepted a pass to start the march that eventually resulted 
in a 22-21 Bison victory. 

''Gio" hit Captain Dick Tyrrell with a 28-yard pass for 
the first touchdown and junior fullback Joe Elliott bulled 
over from the one-yard line for the other two scores. 
Giordano and Tyrrell combined for a two-point conversion 
following the first tally and soph fullback Dave Beitze kicked 
the important extra points following the other two. 

The comeback by the Bisons was terrific, but it was only 
an indication of things to come. On the following Saturday 

"Gio" fires one against Lehigh 

Mike Ci i 

night in Philadelphia. Temple overcame a 7-0 Bucknell lead 
to take a 14-7 advantage into the third quarter, but again 
Giordano turned on the steam and hit Hal Biley with a six- 
yarder in the end zone for the touchdown that made it 14-13. 
No one in the stadium doubted for a moment that Gio would 
pass for the two extra points, but the Owls were unable to 
cope with his magic arm and he hit Tyrrell over the middle 
for the go-ahead points. 

The game was far from over and Bucknell preserved the 
victory by recovering a fumble on the one yard line late 
the fourth quarter, and then a Temple field goal attempt in 
the closing seconds was short and wide of the mark. 

In the third game against Massachusetts the Bisons got 
off to their usual start. The visitors scored on a long pass on 
their first play from scrimmage and then ran back the second 
half kickoff for a 14-0 lead, but it wasn't anywhere near time 
to count the Bisons out. 

Giordano tossed four yards to Bene Clements for a touch- 
down late in the third quarter, and then threw two more 
scoring passes in the final two minutes of the game. The 
first was for eight yards to Clements with 1 :45 remaining 
and the second was a seven-yarder to Tyrrell with 0:45 left 
in the game. 

Gio tossed to Mike Connell for two points after the 
second Bucknell TD to tie the score at 14-14 and Dave Beitze 
missed on the kicking attempt after the third tally, but with 
less than one minute remaining this didn t seem to make too 
much difference. 

However. Jerry Whelchel. Massachusetts' brilliant sopho- 
more quarterback, proceeded to complete three of six passes 
for 67 yards and tossed the 20-yard scoring strike to Loren 
Flagg with only one second remaining on the clock. Flagg 
had scored both of the visitors' first two touchdowns and was 
a real thorn in Bucknell's side all afternoon. 

This was an especially hard loss to take, but the boys 
bounced right back the next week, and led all the way while 
defeating Lehigh. 32-6. Giordano passed eight yards to 
halfback Charlie Thomas, and guard Bill Swineford inter- 
cepted a pass and ran 37 yards for touchdowns in the second 
quarter, and then after Lehigh had narrowed the count to 
16-6. Dave Beitze dove over from the one-yard line and Gio 
passed 37 yards to Clements for two more tallies. 

Giordano passed for three conversions and ran for anoth- 
er and earned his third straight nomination as Bucknell's 
outstanding back of the game. He was named to the Eastern 
College Athletic Conference team of the week following the 
Massachusetts game and was honored by the Maxwell Foot- 
ball Club of Philadelphia on October 22nd. 



Worn the Sidelines 

Giordano tied Paul Terries' school record with his three 
'D passes against Massachusetts . . . The Bisons went 

[Into the Lafayette game tied with Delaware for first place in 
tie Middle Atlantic Conference ... In the first four 
ames Giordano completed 49 of 81 passes for 608 yards 
nd seven touchdowns and threw for six conversions. Soph- 
.more fullback Boh Laughton led the Bison runners with 

I 25 yards, Tyrrell was the top pass receiver with 17 for 205 
aids, and Clements led the scorers with 22 points . 
itandout linemen have been sophomore tackle Bob Brown, 

junior guards Tom Boyd and Bill Swineford. sophomore 
;uard Andy Dzurinko and senior center George Rieu . . . 
Elements was named to the ECAC team of the week following 
he Lehigh game. 


Although he's the only senior in the starting lineup, cap- 
tain and center forward Bill Dahl has really made his pres- 
ence felt on the Bucknell soccer team. 

The Bison booters won two of their first three games, 
including an upset 2-1 victory over Temple, and Dahl had 
scored seven of the team's eight goals. He tied the school 
record set by Lyman Ott last year against Muhlenberg when 
he tallied all four markers in the 4-1 victory over Lafayette. 

Seven sophomores are in the starting lineup for Hank 
Peters' team and an eighth, Don Horning, was a starter 
against Temple, but suffered a broken jaw in practice the 
following week and will be out for the season. 

The booters have a good chance to finish near the top of 
the heap in the Middle Atlantic Conference, but have several 
tough ones ahead. In three games Dahl is halfway toward 
Ott's record of 14 goals in a season. 

The booters lost to Elizabethtown, 5-2, in the second 
game and bounced back against Lafayette to take a 2-1 
mark into the Homecoming game with Gettysburg. 

Freshman Football 


The freshman football and soccer teams both opened 
their seasons with convincing victories over the Lycoming 
College and Lock Haven State College junior varsity teams 

Coach Bob Latour's frosh football team scored in all but 
the opening quarter to defeat Lycoming, 27-0, on October 
12th. End Tom Mitchell scored touchdowns on a six-yard 
pass from quarterback John Pawlowski and on a recovered 
fumble. Fullback Al Keller tallied on a five-yard run, and 
halfback Bob Coons scored on a 59-yard screen pass play 
after taking the toss from quarterback Joe Smith. 

The Baby Bisons looked sharp on defense and Keller 
sparked the running attack with 66 yards in 12 carries. 
Pawlowski, Smith and Bill Lerro handled the signal calling 
duties and completed six of 16 passes for 129 yards. 

The frosh went after victory number two against the 
Gettysburg freshmen on Friday of Homecoming week end. 

Bill Gold's freshman soccer team played a fine all-around 
game to dispose of Lock Haven, 4-1, in the season opener. 
Bill Ginsburg, Ed Frame, John Igos and Pete Nelson all 
scored in the convincing victory. 



Bucknell's new head basketball coach. Gene Evans, sent 
his squad through its first practice session on October 15th. 
and although it is a young and relatively inexperienced 
squad, indications point to a well-drilled team that will run 
a lol and win its share of games. 

A native of Plymouth. Evans was appointed to his new 
position when Ben Kribbs was named director of athletics 
and physical education to succeed the late Al Humphreys. 

Prior to taking the post at Bucknell. Gene had served for 
eleven years as head basketball coach at Carlisle High 
School. During that time his teams won the South Penn 
Conference championship six times, played in the District III 
finals in five of the six years and captured the district title in 
1959 and 1962. 

A 1949 graduate of Dickinson College, Evans has also 
earned a Master of Science in Education degree from Buck- 
nell in 1953, and a Master of Arts degree from the University 
of Michigan in 1960. 

At Dickinson he played four years of varsity basketball. 
and then played one year of professional basketball with the 
York Roses in 1949-50. Prior to entering Dickinson, he 
served 30 months in the U. S. Navy during World War II.

A University Council and an Administrative Council 
have been created at Bucknell this fall. 

The University Council will have as its responsibility 
studying and developing for recommendation to the president 
or the board of trustees matters and policies relating to the 
academic affairs of the University. The council will be the 
senior academic body of the University and will review pro- 
posals and recommendations made by other academic bodies 
and committees of the University.

At the morning Convocation exercises marking the for- 
mal opening of the University's 117th academic year on 
September 19, 1962, Dr. Max Tishler. president of Merck, 
Sharp, and Dohme Research Laboratories, received the hon- 
orary degree of Doctor of Science. In presenting Dr. Tish- 
ler for the degree, Dr. Mark C. Ebersole. vice president for 
academic affairs, cited him as '"a four-fold master of the 
world of chemistry." 

In the evening Dr. Tishler delivered a special lecture 
entitled "Liberal Arts and Astronauts." The address marked 
the tenth anniversary of the Merck-Bucknell Lecture Series. 

In his address. Dr. Tishler deplored the fact that. "Gov- 
ernments are dominated by political leaders with no scien- 
tific or technical education." 

To meet this problem, Dr. 
Tishler called for a sweeping 
revision of science teaching, 
particularly in smaller liberal 
arts colleges. He said the 
goal should be to give future 
leaders in government and 
community life, "a feeling 
for what science is and the 
social significance of its pro- 

During his talk. Dr. Tish- 
ler suggested a specific ap- 
proach to meet the problem 
and cited that. "The chief 
need is to impart to students 
an historical perspective on 
science and its effects on society 

expose the student to courses which impart appreciation and 
understanding of science as it is to expose him to courses in 
the appreciation and understanding of the fine arts." 

Dr. Tishler stressed that non-scientists may have to make 
decisions of great scientific importance. He said "You may 
become legislators, government officials or businessmen with 
responsibility for the policies or direction of a research pro- 
gram, or just educated citizens and community leaders whose 
opinions will have influence on the course of science and 
research. How should you prepare for these vital roles? 
How should our society prepare you? Our sur- 
vival may depend on how well we answer these questions."

Professor John S. Gold '18, was a little disappointed 
when he received only $10 for starring in an electric shaver 
commercial last spring, but he's much happier now. Since 
then he has received nearly $200 in residuals, and as long as 
the advertising agency continues to use the film, he will con- 
tinue to be reimbursed for his appearance. What particu- 
larly amuses him is the fact that he is now technically con-

!•"" June Reunion — 1963 

ELSIE OWENS Long, of St. Petersburg, 
Fla., spent the summer visiting with a friend 
in Watsontown. 

WILLIAM E. PARSON and wife have 
moved from Williamsport to California. Their 
address is 612 S. Fir Ave., Inglewood, Calif. 
We can scarcely hope to see him at Homecom- 
ing, but come June and our 55th reunion, I 
believe that "Chief" Parson will be on the 
Bucknell campus for a great get-together of a 
great class. 

The Class of 1908 was not too well repre- 
sented at the Emeritus Club meeting in June. 
RALPH HALLER. by letter, and I, in person, 
were the only representatives. No doubt you 
are all saving your energies for next June and 
our 55th reunion. 

The committee for reunion plans has had to 
make more changes in their schedule. CARL 
SPROUT, who has been ill in Harrisburg Hos- 
pital for several weeks, will be unable to chair- 
man the committee. (The latest report is that 
Carl is improving. We hope he'll be home 
soon at his new address — 711 N. 2nd St., 

Your class president and I hope that we will 
have the help of all '08ers as we plan for out- 
reunion. If you are at Homecoming, meet with 
us at 10:30 A. M. at 202 St. Louis St. If you 
can't come, please write your suggestions to 
CHARLES NICELY, your president, or to me, 
your reporter. 

CHARLES NICELY, his wife, Ethel, LULU 
COE STOLZ '27, and I had dinner together 
recently. All of us had had a busy summer. 
Lu had spent her time entertaining guests or 
being a guest, herself. The Nicelys had re- 
cently returned from an extensive automobile 
jaunt which included a trip to the Gaspe 
Peninsula, a repeat of fourteen years ago. I, 
too, repeated a former trip this summer by- 
taking my granddaughter. Janet, on a tour of 
Europe and Great Britain.

A letter from MARY MEYER Abbott, daled 
Julv 16, arrived a few days too lale lor the 
September issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS. She wrote about AMY BOLLINGER's 
illness — 18 days in DttBois Hospital in May 
and still waiting in July for definite diagnosis 
of her illness. Sorry, but we have no late 

information about Amy. We certainly hopt 
for her a speedy recovery. 

In September Mr. and Mrs. HELGE FLOR 
IN, of St. Petersburg, Fla., visited their daugh- 
ter and family in Washington, D. C. In Octo-! 
ber they were present at the delightful reunion! 
of their family held in Johnsonburg. 

ERNESTINE HYATT Villalon and her hus-l 
band, JOSE '11. from Philadelphia came tol 
see GILBERT LYTE in St. Petersburg, Fla.. 
recently. That visit was a happy one for Gil-I 
bert and, all in all, his health by now — mid-1 
September — is much improved. 

Just a quotable quote: "The opinions ex- 1 
pressed by the husband in a home are notl 
necessarily those of the management."

It seems so early but it's now-or-never the I

Dr. J. EARLE EDWARDS and his wife, 
Carrie, were recently presented with a shiny 
new Chrysler car for their 49th wedding anni- 
versary as a "token of affection" by members 
of Dr. Edwards' Adult Bible Class at Pasa- 
dena Community Church in St. Petersburg, 
Fla. To quote from the Religious News Sec- 
tion of the St. Petersburg Times — "Far more 
than the size of the gift is the unusual story 
of Dr. Edwards and his Sunday School Class. 
Pasadena is a Methodist church; Dr. Edwards 
is a Baptist minister teaching in the Method- 
ist church with the complete approval of its 
pastor. He is pastor emeritus of the Queens 
Baptist Church in New York City which he 
served for 27 years before retiring to St. 
Petersburg, Fla., ten years ago." 

He and Mrs. Edwards are associate mem- 
bers of the American Baptist Church of the 
Beatitudes which they attend after the Sunday 
morning Bible Class which evolved eight years 
ago somewhat by chance. After serving as 
superintendent of the adult department at 
Pasadena he taught a Family Forum group, 
attendance at which soon passed the 200 mark. 
Then came into being the TURF Class (the 
LIpper Room Fellowship). As the class grew 
it was forced to move from place to place in 
the church until now it occupies the audito- 
rium of the old edifice. The class slogan, "Not 
to settle but to unsettle minds" and the class 
motto, "Not what we stand for, but what we're 
striving for," with plenty of free discussion, 
may partially explain its success. In connec- 
tion with his Bible Class, Dr. Edwards has, for 
the past four years, issued a two-page weekly 
news publication. Dr. Edwards is the 13th 
member of his family on his mother's side to 
enter the Baptist ministry. Prior to entering 
Bucknell he received his degree in civil engi- 
neering at Delaware State University. Inter- 
est in religion led him to Bucknell where he 
earned bachelor's, master's and twenty-five 
years later an honorary Doctor of Divinity de- 
gree. He is also a graduate of Crozer Theo- 
logical Seminary. 

A card from MABEL JOHNSON Viehoever 
said that after a lengthy illness she jetted to 
her daughter's home in Honolulu where she's 
been relying on the sunshine and the stiff 
Pacific breezes to restore her former good 



lealtli. We hope by now Mabel is glowing 
.vith good health anil energy. 

During the summer, MacARTHUR GOR- 
TON sent a card to JACK BANK saying he 
rad attended a Bucknell dinner in Los An- 
jeles, Calif., gone on to San Francisco, Calif., 
for a few days, to Olympic Park, and to 
Seattle, Wash., for the fair. He had also had 
la visit with "HAPPY" HUNTER "11 who 
sends his best to everyone.

Dedicated to the second generation: 

Buy lunch box for Mary, 
Get pencils for Sam ; 
Underwear for Tommy 
And new shoes for Pam. 

Mom's mind's in a dither, 
But a gay mood she's in — 
Just a few more days 
And school will begin. 

I'm still reunion minded. Since I was only 
allowed 300 words I just couldn't say all I 
wanted to say. 

There are forty-one living members in our 
class who were graduated in 1912. Of this 
number thirty-nine sent back their question- 

I naires and were represented in our reunion 
book. Lovely letters were received from the 

i other two. There were twelve biographies, in- 
i eluding two from the Seminary, representing 

II those who had been with us one year. 

In 1947 at our 35th reunion there were 

j eighteen back at this time. In 1952 — 17. In 

1957 — 17. In 1962 there were twenty-five rep- 

• resented in our picture. JIM HARRIS and 

OLIVE LONG HAGGERTY were back for the 

I class dinner. Sickness kept most of the mem- 

I bers from attending. We should be very 

grateful that the rest of us "are fine for the 

I shape we are in." 

Speaking of our class picture, my two older 

grandchildren were examining it very closely, 

asking all sorts of questions about this one, 

etc. All of a sudden my lovable seven-year- 

I old grandson took one glance and said, "Why 

Granny, you're the prettiest one there." Then 

: almost in the same breath he said, "Could you 

I give me ten cents for a 'Softie' tomorrow?" 

i The "Softie" category, I guess, is where we 

grandparents belong. 

A card from HELEN RUTH: "Am having 
marvelous bus tour of 33 days to travel through 
24 states. Just finished two days at Salt Lake 
City, Utah. Entered Yellowstone Park after 
viewing these magnificent peaks." 

LEON CRANDALL, secretary of Montgom- 
ery Borough, was elected second vice president 
of the State Governmental Secretary's Confer- 
ence at the recent annual session. He served 
as state financial secretary for the past seven 
years. He and Grace attended the state con- 
ference at Tamiment in the Poconos. 

FRED IGLER and Katie have been mixing 
business with pleasure according to his card: 
"Affectionate greetings to you and Hilbert 
from Katie and me. We spent last week in 
Hartford with daughter and grandchildren. 
Have had glorious week at Boothbay Harbor, 
including two boat rides. Back to Hartford 
for Friday night and to Philly Saturday for 
preaching Sunday in First Church. Then to 
preach in New York City where I have a 
long week end. Have had two wonderfid din- 
ners at ART WALTZ's when I preached in 
Lansdowne. They have a wonderful yard."

The regular fall meeting of the Board of Directors of the Bucknell Engineering 
Alumni Association was held at the Engineers Club in Philadelphia, Friday evening, 
September 14. Pictured (Left to Right) are Dr. Morris D. Hooven '20, R. Barlow 
Smith '27, Frank E. Gerlilz '34, Lester R. Light-on '20, and Dean Herbert Eckberg. 
Eugene Cook '43, RCA engineer, presided at the meeting of eleven members of the 
board. Dean Eckberg, Professor Emeritus Irland '15, and Professor J. B. Miller 
'26 attended from Lewisburg. Dean Eckberg reported on progress in engineering 
at Bucknell and other committee chairmen made reports. One of the highlights 
of Dean Eckberg's report was the great advances made in the computing center 
and the extended use of computers in undergraduate instruction. 

The annual dinner for all engineering Alumni ivas held at Homecoming at the 
Lewisburii Club at which tune new directors were elected. 

phia at a luncheon of the "Christian Higher 
Education" division, he was awarded a cita- 
tion in recognition of his many years of ser- 
vice as minister to Baptist students at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania. 

Howard Baker, daughter of the late W. W. 
EISTER who was a member of our class, came 
back for Commencement in memory of her 
father. She sat in on our class meeting then 
walked down the hill with the class. Wasn't 
that a nice thought: 1 I have written her a 
letter of apology for not asking her to sit at 
our table. Why did I forget? Mrs. Baker 
received both undergraduate and graduate de- 
grees from Bucknell in 1926.

No light alone brings cheer,

Make Christmas all the year."

June Reunion — 1963 

Do you remember when Professor Drum 
said to one of the members of our class, "Who 
in the world taught you your algebra before 
you came to college?" The blushing freshman 
replied, "You did teacher, in the Academy." 
Well, it will be things like that we will be 
recalling when we meet for our 50th class 
reunion next June. Surely, you can't miss 
your 50th. Don't wait for your 100th - 
there may not be any transportation facilities 
between Lewisburg and Abraham's bosom. 

Plans are now being made for the big 
day. I understand the Gift Committee has 
selected for our 50th Anniversary Memorial 
Gift to Bucknell, the Portico (overhead canopy 
and columns) of the proposed chapel. This 
will make a beautiful and lasting gift. This 
outstanding gift should challenge every living 

REHMAN and BARTLETT have gone 
since last we met at our 45th. One was 
short and one was tall. Now both are in the 
land of no recall. We cannot think of "Dutch" 
apart from his buddy cornetist HAGEMAN. 
Funny, how we paired off in those days, a 
"shortie" and a "longie." Of Bartlett we have 
less campus recollection, except a good class- 
room performance here and there. 

We are writing this from Minneapolis, 
Minn., as we visit with MARY ELLEN '42. 

This column is yours, classmate. Its stature 
is the measure of your own interest; its im- 
age the reflection of your loyalty to your 
one-time coterie of searchers for truth. As 
other class reporters I urge you to pass along 
something to insert in this allotted space. 

We will watch the Twins battle Detroit to- 
morrow in the tight American League pennant 
race. If it were a subject for prayer I would 
surely be on my knees beseeching heaven's in- 
terest in the dethroning of the Yankees. Bronx- 
ite as I once was for ten years, I have turned 
on them for moving their training base from 
St. Pete to Ft. Lauderdale in Florida.

After a two-month trip to Hawaii and the 
Orient, I am home and very grateful to have 
seen the beauty and ugliness of some of the 
other countries. But even in the ugliness and 
poverty there was a dignity and pride very 
evident in the conduct of the people. All the 
travelers had a heyday shopping in Hong 
Kong. A six-hour train ride from Tokyo to 
Kyoto in Japan was one of the most won- 
derful of our experiences. The countryside 
was so beautiful and so many little gardens 
on the farms were like small landscaped parks. 
We were fortunate to have a clear day and for 
an hour we had different views of Fujiyama, 
Japan's most beautiful mountain and extinct

That time again! It seems as though I just 
■ eported to you so this time I have only one 

r two persons to write about. Had a long, 
Ijtewsy letter from ED WILLIAMS, whom I've 

;nown for many years as we used to live on 
Ihe same street in Milton. Wish you all 
ll'ould read it, it's most interesting. Ed's wife, 
Dodie, is a graduate of Geneva College; they 
have one daughter who is a graduate of Mar- 
garet Morrison School, Carnegie Tech, mar- 
lied and now living on the Pacific coast and 
kvho has presented Ed and Dodie with five 
grandchildren. Ed gets all around the coun- 

ry with his work, but his hobby or avocation 
[sounds most unusual. Ed is quite the histo- 
rian. He sent me a copy of December '61 
\The Western Pennsylvania Historical Maga- 
zine in which he had an article entitled 
■'Treasure Hunt in the Forest." Even as vague 
as I am about history I enjoyed it immensely. 
He has published a few documents, such as 
journals or diaries, orderly books, letters, etc., 
with introduction, notes, etc., which have re- 
ceived good acceptance. Some of the docu- 
ments were unpublished ones and from neg- 
lected areas of American history. He has re- 
ceived notices from the Pittsburgh Press, Sun 
Telegraph and various library bulletins. He 
spends a good bit of time in libraries and 
manuscript rooms. Ed no longer does any 
sculpture but I understand there are busts of 
Presidents Marts and Harris which Ed made 
and presented to Bucknell. The next time 
I'm at Bucknell I'll sure look up those busts, 
Ed. Ed has a fine collection of old American 
swords, which Bill and I hope to see someday. 
I could write more about Ed but I've already 
written more than he probably wanted me to. 
He is just too modest. 

Remember HERBERT SLACK? He was 
originally in our class but sickness caused him 
to graduate with the Class of '28; however, 
he still feels he's a member of our class. 
"Herb" lives in Wilmington, N. C, and on 
October 18 of this year will celebrate his 25th 
anniversary with the Metropolitan Life Insu- 
rance Company (he's District Office Agent 
there). Herb is another member of our class 
who has had a varied career, went to Jeffer- 
son Medical College, got his master's degree 
in education at Duke University, and is now in 
insurance! He married Louise Marks, a 
graduate of University of North Carolina. 
Their son. Bill, graduated 1st in chemical en- 
gineering from University of North Carolina 
and is now doing graduate work at the Uni- 
versity of Delaware. Bill was quite the ath- 
lete and earned eleven letters in basketball, 
football, and baseball. Dick, the younger 
son, is in 9th grade, 6' %" tall, 172 pounds, 
and already has one letter in football.

of you don't write there won't be any next

Plan NOW for our reunion in 1965! 

Mrs. DOROTHY LEVEGOOD Eberenz died 
on July 14, 1962, in the Williamsport Hospi- 
tal. Dorothy had undergone two serious oper- 
ations within ten days, and her death came 
as a shock to all her classmates. She is sur 
vived by her husband. William J. Eberenz, and 
two children: Susan, a sophomore in the 
Jersey Shore Senior High School; and John, 
who is in junior high school. Also surviving 
are her sisters: Miss Ruth Levegood of Jer- 
sey Shore, and Mrs. HELEN LEVEGOOD 
Clarke '12 of Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. and Mrs. 
Robert Hartman (REBA DECKER) of Wayne 
attended the funeral services. 

So happy to tell you of a classmate who is 
really "doing things" out in California — SAL- 
LIE ROBERTSON (Mrs. John Janssen) oi 
1940 Lorain Rd., San Marino, Calif. The job 
of class reporter has one wonderful advantage 
— hearing from old friends (and I use "old" 
only in years since graduation — none of us 
would really live up to such a title!) and 
refreshing our memories about the past. It 
would take a full issue of THE BUCKNELL 
ALUMNUS to give you the story of Sallie's 
educational background and work experience. 
Sallie lists her college background as — Rut- 
ger's Summer School, 1926; Bucknell Univer- 
sity. 1926-29; Columbia University, 1944-45, 
B.S. degree: Stanford Lmiversity, 1945-51, 
M.A. degree; San Francisco State. 1949; San 
Jose State, 1960; U. C. L. A.. 1964-59; Los 
Angeles State, 1957-59. (In-service training, 
juvenile delinquency) Sallie has done coun- 
seling, taught social studies, English, and 
guidance in many places; but I must tell you 
of one of her greatest achievements — that of 
writing a syndicated column which is doing 
very well. The by-line for the column is 
"Your Teacher" and it appears under various 
titles across the country. She sent me two 
of (he columns from recent papers and I'd 
certainly love to have space to share them 
with you. Sallie and John have a daughter, 
Jean, married and living in Palo Alto, Calif.. 



Sachiye Mizuki '48 

In the October 1961 issue of Our 
World, a quarterly publication of the 
American Field Service, there appeared 
an interesting full page profile story on 
Sachiye Mizuki '48. "right-hand man" 
to Mr. Galatti, director general of the 

The author of the story. Carla Rotolo. 
recounts Miss Mizuki's early childhood 
as a daughter of Japanese immigrant 
farmers and the hardships encountered 
by the family while in "relocation 
camps" on the Pacific coast during 
World War II — a time when all those of 
Japanese descent fell prey to distrust and 
suspicion. It was during this internment 
period of her life that Sachiye decided 
to continue her education and eventually 
entered Bucknell and graduated cum 
laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Following graduation she went to New 
York and was hired as a "temporary 
secretary" to Mr. Galatti. Today she is 
a permanent fixture and is in charge of 
the school placement program, helps to 
supervise the Americans Abroad sum- 
mer program, and corresponds with the 
AFS committees abroad. 

Perhaps Miss Mizuki's worth to the 
organization is best summed up in Mr. 
Galatti's words when he says, "Sachi's 
wisdom, her unerring discernment of 
what is important, her seeking for per- 
fection has made this program function 
over the years. She won her place at 
the top through sheer ability and clear 
understanding of the purpose of AFS. 
She has never compromised with expedi- 
ency or injustice and has set a standard 
that runs throughout the administration. 
Through her extensive travels she has 
gathered an insight into the needs of our 
committees and returnees abroad which 
has resulted in an invaluable coopera- 
tion on their part. And may I add that 
she is a lovable person, a very rare hu- 
man being." 

and she has given Grandmother Sallie four 
adorable grandchildren. Sallie mentions that 
PAT REEVES Kennedy lives near her in Es- 
condido, Calif., that she visited with JEAN 
WOOD '29 on her way east in June of 1961. 
and also she met PEG SCHUYLER (Mrs. 
Daniel Augustine) who lives in Carson City, 
Nev., when addressing a newspaper workshop 
at U. C. L. A. I want to tell you all about 
Peg and her interests but no more space- 
so look forward to the next issue when you'll 
hear about Peg and her experiences in Nevada. 
Write me about YOU — please!

Mary Teresa Bergeron, who was one year old 
in April, is the daughter oj S/Sgt. and Mrs. 
Richard Bergeron (Mildred Orlowski '48, M.S. 
'52). The Bergerons live at 6705 Fairwood 
Rd., Londoner Estates, Hyattsville, Md. 

ters arrived this week with news of class mem- 
bers in the Middle and Far West. 

The first was from JEAN ROCKWELL Noo- 
nan who still has reporting in her blood, tell- 
ing me that ANNE HOUGH Jones (Mrs. 
Leslie M.) has a new address, 3595 E. Huron 
River Dr., Ann Arbor, Mich. Rock says it 
is a beautiful redwood house overlooking the 
river which is very wide at that point, and is 
a "wildlife sanctuary. 

The next came from EDGAR K. SMITH 
who actually graduated in 1947, but holds an 
allegiance to our class with which he started. 
He says he was too old when he finished, 
and was anxious to be elsewhere. I presume 
that it was the war that interrupted his school- 
ing. Ed, his wife, and three children (two 
boys and one girl) live at 11250 West Nine 
Mile Rd. in South Lyon, Mich. He is tem- 
porarily bedfast from a recent heart attack, 
but hopes to return to his teaching position 
at Olivet College next semester. He once 
took a graduate course at the University of 
Michigan under the eminent Bucknellian C. 
C. FRIES '09. We hope that this heart at- 
tack is just a friendly warning to take things 

A most impressive letterhead and brochure 
notified me that RICHARD D. ROSELLE '41 
is now involved in the new design firm of Ro- 
selle-Adams Design Associates in Seattle, 
Wash., serving industrial and commercial firms 
in the northwest. He has assisted with the 
development of decorative materials for many 
of the Boeing jets, among others. Dick has 
not been back to Bucknell, but he, his wife 
Eunice and their three daughters (13, 11, 2) 
spend occasional summers in the east, so he 
has the best of intentions. Their address is 
3534 Forty-sixth Ave., N. W., Seattle 5, Wash. 

Another one who took Horace Greeley's ad- 
vice is Dr. HOWARD W. RUNKEL (M.A. 
'42) who informs me that he and his wife MARY 
WALKER RUNKEL '35 have moved to a 
new address in Salem, Oregon, where Howard 
has for 13 years been chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Speech and Drama at Willamette 
University. Their home overlooks the city 

with the campus and state capitol far below 
and four snow-capped Cascade peaks (Mt. 
Hood and Jefferson in Oregon and St. Helens 
and Adams in Washington) on the horizon. 
Last year the Runkels toured ten countries in 
Europe. Howard also appeared on the na- 
tionally televised COLLEGE BOWL program 
in New York and continued his speaking 
schedule which has seen him addressing a 
total of nearly 700 audiences in six states 
since 1950. He will take a student debate 
team to Hawaii this year. Mary was Buck- 
nell's office manager for a number of years. 
They have a nine-year-old daughter, Frances. 

LES EHRINGER goes to Hawaii on busi- 
ness, Howard goes with debate teams, and the 
rest of us just want to GO! The Runkel ad- 
dress is 2795 Argyle Drive, South, Salem, 

A glance at the pictures of the new Class 
of '66 showed Nancy Jane Cochran, daughter 
of JEAN KOEBLEY Cochran, and James 
Simms, Jr., namesake of JAMES SIMMS, SR., 
to be the only children of our classmates en- 
tering Bucknell this fall. Makes you feel 
old, doesn't it? 

Our canoe trip to Canada was a wonderful 
week to remember, although I questioned 
the term "vacation" sometimes when I was 
knee-deep in mud with a 55 pound food pack 
on my back on one of the portages. Keep the 
letters coming with news, and I'll see you in 
the January issue.

In the September 14, 1962, issue of Life magazine, Philip Roth '54 is among 
100 young leaders of this "Take-Over Generation" in an article entitled "A Red- 
Hot Hundred." 

Mr. Roth's new novel, Letting Go, and his collection of short stories, Goodby, 
Columbus, which won the 1960 National Book Award, have established him as one 
of the leading figures in new American fiction. 

The young author's literary career began before his graduation from Buck- 
nell. The first'drafts of The Contest for Aaron Gold, a short story selected as one 
of the best of 1956, was written while Phil was still an undergraduate. His first 
published short story, The Day It Snowed, appeared in the Chicago Review maga- 
zine within months after he was graduated. 

A writer-in-residence at Princeton University, Mr. Roth merited inclusion with 
Life's other 99 young leaders by meeting the criteria established by the publication 
of a zest for hard work, dedication to something larger than private success, the 
courage to act against old problems, and a hard-bitten undaunted hopefulness 
about men. 

Some of the young American "movers and shakers" named with Mr. Roth 
are Frank Church, senator from Idaho; Andre Previn. prolific composer and ar- 
ranger; Chris Kraft, Jr., Project Mercury flight chief at Cape Canaveral: Harold 
Brown, atomic physicist: Ted Hood, designer of the Nefertiti, and Nina Braunwald, 
first woman certified as a heart surgeon in the United States. 

As we go to press we learn of an additional honor awarded Mr. Roth. He is 
one of fifteen men who have been named Humanities Council Fellows at Princeton 
University. The Council of the Humanities was founded to coordinate teaching and 
research enterprises between the natural and social sciences and the humanities. 

On October 23, 1962, Mr. Roth visited the campus to speak at the Student 

inary in May and is serving as protestanl 
chaplain at the New Jersey State Home for 
Girls at Trenton. N. J., and as ministerial- 
director of the Protestant Foundation at Rider 
College and Trenton State College. BEVER-

Bucknell University and the commu- 
nity of Lewisburg lost one of the most 
well-known and liked figures in the area 

with the death on Friday. August 31, of 
W. Guy Payne. He was 79. 

Mr. and Mrs. Payne were visiting 
relatives in Kinsman, Ohio, in mid- 
August when he suffered a stroke. He 
was entered in the Greenville ( Pa. ) Hos- 
pital and died nine days later without 
recovering consciousness. 

Guy was born August 20, 1883, in 
Kinsman, Ohio. The family later moved 
to Titusville where he graduated from 
the high school in 1904. He entered 
Bucknell University in 1905, enrolled as 
a ministerial student. As a means of 
financing his college education, Guy 
made and sold snacks in the dormitory, 
later opening the College Inn restaurant 
on the campus which he operated until 

From 1909 to 1915 he served with the 
Santa Fe Railroad as a dining car cook, 
and held several hotel and restaurant 
chef positions, working from 1913 to 
1915 as chef in the Baltimore and Mue- 
linbach hotels in Kansas City. 

He married the former Alice Theresa 
Anderson, who survives, in Guthrie, 
Okla.. in 1913, and in 1915 they moved 
to Lewisburg where Guy again assumed 
operation of the College Inn. 

The original building was replaced 
that year by a brick cottage and rebuilt 
again in 1925 to include seven apart- 
ments and four business establishments. 

In December of 1960, Mr. Payne, al- 
ways a staunch supporter of Bucknell 
University, turned over the College Inn 
to the University, retaining his own 
living quarters. 

During his lifetime he was a faithful 
member of the First Baptist Church, 
Lewisburg, and held various offices in 
the congregation over the years. 

He was a member of the Lewisburg 
Lodge of Masons, Williamsport Consis- 
tory, was a 32nd degree Mason, a mem- 
ber of the Williamsport Knights Tem- 
plar, Irem Temple Shrine, Wilkes-Barre, 
Friday Night Club at Williamsport, and 
Sunbury Shrine Clubs. 

He was a charter member of the Lew- 
isburg Lions Club and a member of the 
Y. M. C. A. serving as District Chair- 
man of the North Central District of the 
state Y. M. C. A. for 15 years. 

In June 1962. he became a member 
of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on the 
Bucknell campus. 

Throughout his lifetime he heartily 
championed any cause he took up. and 
was well known for his acid wit and 
comment in his fight against alcoholism 
and moral laxity, especially in politics. 
Generous in his assistance to needy stu- 
dents, he quietly aided hundreds in se- 
curing their college degrees. 

When word of his death reached his 
large circle of friends, tributes to his 
courage and persistence soon appeared. 
The editor of the Sunbury Daily Item 
wrote this about Guy : 

"A man with deep convictions and the 
indomitable courage to support them, 
Mr. Payne was outspoken and persistent 
in his criticism of wrong wherever he 
found it. The university administra- 
tion, the student newspaper, public offi- 
cials and those organizations which 
countenanced practices which he con- 
sidered improper or morally harmful 
felt the sting of his words in paid adver- 
tisements. And he was never deterred 
by ominous threats or petty acts of ven- 
geance, nor awed by the prominence or 
power of the individual or group he 
called to task." 

Writing as a member of the Class of 
1931 and as one who was aided through 
Bucknell by a part-time job at the Col- 
lege Inn, the following appeared in The 
Buchnellian on September 21, 1962. 

"Many kidded him, because his sin- 
cerity was at times painful to observe. 
The world should have a few such hon- 
est convictions . . . agreed with or 

"I am 53 years old and not the image 
of the usual 'Cream Puff.' When, on 
word from Mrs. Payne that Guy had had 
his final stroke, I wept. My family 
could understand my weeping grief, be- 
cause they had known and admired all 
the things Guy Payne had meant to me 
and had appreciated the sterling quali- 
ties he had instilled. This, then, is the 
essence of Guy Payne's worth, that his 
soul will always go marching on in 
good lanes." 

Writing in the Union County Journal, 
the editor had this editorial: 

"However, say what one will about 
Mr. Payne's objectives, the fact is that 
his great courage and conviction will 
long stand as a hallmark among men 
who have fought for the good of their 
community. Not only did he spend a 
great deal of his own money to sponsor 
advertising in local newspapers, Mr. 
Payne put a great deal of his time and 
effort into every cause which concerned 
him. He was a totally involved citizen. 
His principles could never be ques- 
tioned. There is a need for more people 
like this — more citizens who are willing 
to stand up and be counted no matter 
what the price. Men with the convic- 
tion and determination of Mr. Payne are 
rare. His loss will not soon be forgot- 

Funeral services were held on Tues- 
day, September 4, in the First Baptist 
Church at Lewisburg, in charge of the 



pastor. Dr. W. Wesley Shrader. with 
University officials as pallbearers. Inter- 
ment was held in Lewisburg Cemetery 
following the services. Guy is survived 
by his wife who continues to reside in an 
apartment in the College Inn. where she 
will be able to survey the campus scene 
that she and Guy enjoyed for so many 
years as partners. The condolences of 
the Bucknell family are extended to her, 
a surviving sister of Guy's, Mrs. Ella 
Mook. of Millmont. and a nephew. John 
C. Mook '50. 




Bucknell lost one of its most loyal 
sons with the death, on August 27, 1962, 
of Joshua R. Golightly in a Madison

We were all saddened to learn of the 
death by a tragic automobile accident of 
Mrs. John W. Speicher (Mary G. Stan- 
ton) in Reading on Sunday. July 29, 

Mr. and Mrs. Speicher, with their 
daughter. Frances, were driving from 
their home in Reading on that quiet 
afternoon to a dinner in Lancaster 
County when their automobile was hit 
broadside at the entrance to a highway 
bridge in the city of Reading. Mary was 
thrown from the car and died 40 min- 
utes later in the Reading Hospital. Her 
husband, John, and daughter, Frances, 
were treated for slight injuries at the 
hospital and discharged. 

The Class of 1907 and Bucknell Ui 
versity have lost one of its long-tir 
supporters with the death of Mary. Ju 
last June, through the generosity of M 
and Mrs. Speicher, the establishment I 
the Mary Stanton Speicher Scholarsh 
Fund was announced at the alum 
luncheon. Mary had served for a nui 
ber of years as alumni fund managt 
of her class and on a number of oca 
sions had made anonymous conlrib 
tions in the name of members of he 
class who could no longer afford I 
maintain their record of annual-givin 

A member of one of the most loyal c 
Bucknell families. Mary had a sister an 
two brothers who also attended the Un 
versity. Her sister, Eveline Judith Star 
ton, who earned the Bachelor of Philosc 
phy degree at Bucknell in 1890 and th 
Master of Philosophy degree at the Uni 
versity of Chicago in 1905 served fo 
some years as preceptress at the Femal 
Institute here on the campus beforl 
marrying Mr. Charles A. Gundy. Mr 
Gundy died in 1917 and Eveline it 
1944. Mary's brother, Herbert Charle: 
Stanton. M.D.. earned his Bucknell de 
gree in 1897 and the Doctor of Medicine 
at the University of Pennsylvania ir 
1901. He died in 1938 in Clifton 
Heights. Her other brother. Frank 
White Stanton, Esq., who graduated 
from Bucknell in 1902, went on to West 
ern Reserve University Law Schoo 
where he earned the LL.B. degree in 
1908. At Bucknell he served as football 
captain for two years and later was foot 
ball coach at Denison University follow 
ing which he practiced law in Cleveland 
Ohio. He died in 1960, leaving four 
sons, one of whom, James, graduated 
from Bucknell in 1951. 

Mary was born in Chinchilla, on 
January 22, 1886. She earned a diplo 
ma from the Female Institute in 1904, 
a diploma from the School of Music in 
1906. and a Bachelor of Philosophy de- 
gree from Bucknell University in 1907. 
She became a member of Pi Beta Phi 
sorority while a student and because of 
her fluency in writing became the class 
poet and historian as well as assistant 
editor of U Agenda. Following gradua- 
tion she served for two years as a 
teacher at Union Seminary, New Berlin, 
for a year as a teacher at Stetson 
University in DeLand, Fla., and for five 
years as a teacher and preceptress at 
Bucknell. She married John W. Spei- 
cher, who had prepared for the practice 
of law at the University of Michigan, in 
1915, who survives, along with two chil- 
dren, John S. Speicher, Esq., and Miss 
Frances Speicher: a nephew, James H. 
Stanton '51, to all of whom the Class of 
1907 and Bucknell University extend 
deepest sympathy. 





Bucknell lost a dedicated friend and 
;voted former trustee with the death, 
i Thursday, July 26, 1962, of Dr. H. 
oardman Hopper at his home in Mer- 
in, near Philadelphia. 

A graduate of Haverford College in 
le Class of 1906. Dr. Hopper joined 
le Bucknell Board of Trustees in 1918 
> continue a tradition begun by his 
randfather, William Bucknell. and lat- 
r carried on by his father, Dr. Harry S. 
[opper, who was chairman of the Board 
om 1890 to 1917. His mother, the late 
'," larriet Bucknell Hopper, was the daugh- 
;r of William Bucknell. whose name 
1 le University bears. 

A member of the investment firm of 
[opper, Soliday, and Company, found- 
d by his uncle and father in 1872 as 
i William G. Hopper and Company," H. 
ioardman Hopper made available to the 
Jniversity his special knowledge and 
bility during the administrations of 
even Bucknell presidents. From 1918 
intil 1959 he served on the Trustee 
finance Committee and was its chair- 
pan from 1921 until 1957. For 23 
'ears, from 1936 until 1959. be served 

also on the Trustee Committee on Invest- 
ments. To both of these assignments he 
gave generously of his time and talents 
in a period marked by unparallel ex- 
pansion of the financial program of the 

In 1956, he was awarded the honorary 
degree of Doctor of Business Adminis- 
tration by Bucknell in recognition of 
"his notable integrity and efficiency in 
business affairs, his intimate relation to 
the University, and his expenditure of 
time, money, and effort in the interests 
of Bucknell." 

In addition to serving Bucknell, Dr. 
Hopper also devoted considerable time 
to the work of the Northern Baptist 
Convention as a member of that body's 
Board of Education and Publication and 
to the program of the Pennsylvania Bap- 
tist Convention as a member of that 
group's Investment Advisory Committee.

per, II; two daughters, Mrs. Stephen C. 
Rowan, Jr., and Mrs. Charles T. Kline, 
Jr.; three sisters and eight grandchil- 
dren, to whom the heartfelt condolences

Hitler, let us explain hastily, is the mounted head of a 
bison that once roamed in South Park, Pittsburgh. It seems 
he escaped from the zoo and had to be destroyed for the 
safety of the civilian population. His head was mounted on 
the wall of the Crowfoot Rod and Gun Club in Wilkinsburg 
and when that club's headquarters was torn down later, the 
bison head was secured by Mr. George F. Lloyd, Jr., who 
presented it to Bucknell in honor of his sister, Mrs. Martha 
Lloyd Henry '44, of Hershey. 

So Hitler is now in college, mounted on the wall of The 
Bison, popular student gathering place and snack bar, where 
he can observe the antics of present day Bisons and Bison- 
ettes. Come in to see him on your next trip to the campus. 


Almost every college student looks forward to being invit- 
ed to the president's house some time before he graduates, 
but Robert Owens, of Cortland, N. Y., may have set a record 
that will be hard to beat. 

Arriving at Bucknell University for his first day as a 
freshman. Robert went promptly to the campus to register 
for a pre-college conference. It was late in the afternoon and 
when he found the office locked and nobody around, he 
assumed he had missed registration as well as the station 

wagon which was to take him to the Christian Association 
Center at Cowan. 

As he walked dejectedly across the campus, a gentleman 
who sensed his plight stopped him and offered to be of 
assistance. When Freshman Owens finished relating his 
problem, the man introduced himself as Dr. Merle M. 
Odgers, president of Bucknell, and invited him to dinner. 

After dinner, President and Mrs. Odgers drove Robert to 
the conference center, where he discovered that he had 
arrived too early, rather than too late — the conference was 
not scheduled to begin until the next day. 


The theme of this year's Business Forum series, now 
beginning its twelfth consecutive year of cooperation and 
service between businessmen and educators, is, "American 
Business: Key to Economic Progress." 

Five nationally outstanding businessmen, each represent- 
ing a different segment of the business community, will 
appear as guest speakers to discuss such topics as labor, dis- 
tribution, banking, sales, and production problems. 

Leading executives who have been invited to speak at the 
forthcoming Forum programs include: R. Conrad Cooper, 
executive vice president — personnel services, U. S. Steel Cor- 
poration, Pittsburgh; Paul J. Cupp, president of American 
Stores, Inc., Philadelphia: James J. Saxon, comptroller of 
the currency, U. S. Treasury Department, Washington. D. C. : 
D. H. Dawson, vice president. E. I. DuPont Co., Wilming- 
ton, Delaware; and P. K. Shoemaker, senior vice president 
in charge of operations, H. J. Heinz Co.. Pittsburgh. 

Dr. Neil F. Shiffler. chairman of the Department of Busi- 
ness Administration, is director of the Business Forum.

At your University feeding students and college 
personnel is a big job and it is performed efficiently 
by the staff of the Food Service Department. This 
year 1600 persons eat in the three University dining 
balls. Other members of the student body take their 
meals in their fraternity houses or, in the case of 
commuting students, at home. 

In addition to the daily preparation and serving of 
meals, the Food Service Department does such extras 
as: provides picnic lunches for members of the Bison 
Marching Band on trips; sends meals to the Cowan 
Conference Center for the football team prior to home 
games; and prepares food for the president's reception 
and homecoming and alumni week end luncheons. 
Quantities of food such as 300 dozen rolls, 150 dozen 
cookies, and 250 pies are all in a day's work at the 
University bakery. With pie on the menu it takes 
more than 200 of these pastries to "go around." And, 
would you guess that students eat 1800 cookies each 
time they are served! 

Presently the three dining halls — the University 
Cafeteria on University Avenue, the Women's Dining 
Hall at the "Sem," and the John Houghton Harris 
Dining Room at Swartz Hall on the "hill" — are 
scattered over the campus. The proposed student center 
will include centralized dining facilities and will 
enable the department to streamline its service.

History does not record that Miss Edith Schillin- 
ger was ever cast for a lead part in early dramatic 
performances, but she was certainly a "leading" 
lady in establishing the dramatic arts at Bucknell. 
The article that follows is not only a tribute to her 
pioneer efforts in organizing the first dramatic club, 
but it is also an excellent historical account of the 
very beginning of the theatre at Bucknell. 

We wish to express our gratitude to Mrs. H. B. 
Weaver (Dora Hamler '14) for writing this story 
for us. Mrs. Weaver's personal experience and her 
long hours of research have helped us to a clearer 
understanding of a part of University life lived by 
hundreds of Alumni over the past sixty years. 

Our thanks go also to Dr. C. W'illard Smith, 
chairman of the English department, who submitted 
the first article on Bucknell's dramatic heritage en- 
titled. "The University Theatre," published in the 
March, 1960, issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS. You may recall that Dr. Smith contrasted 
the present modern facilities of the University 
Theatre in Coleman Hall with those in the "old 

If you haven't had the opportunity to see the 
theatre, which is one of the finest of college theatres 
anywhere, why not plan on seeing one of the two 
remaining Cap and Dagger performances this aca- 
demic year. On March 1,2,8, and 9 "John Brown s 
Body" will be presented and on May 2, 3, 4, and 
June 1 (Alumni Day) "Teahouse of the August 
Moon" will be the play.

N September 1900. Miss Edith Schillinger arrived in Lev 
isburg as a teacher in the Bucknell Institute. Her nam 
was carried in the University catalogue of that year as 
teacher of elocution and gymnastics. She remained fo 
nineteen years. 

The writer first became acquainted with her on enterin ; 
the Institute in 1906 as a Third Form student. Third Forn 
girls and boys in the Seminary and Academy had a coursi 
in public speaking. With Miss Schillinger it was a popu 
lar course and instilled a love for interpretation of the writ 
ten word and for dramatic art in general. 

Some of us enrolled as private students. We wen 
trained to "speak out"' so that we could be heard and undeij 
stood. Enunciation, articulation, and poise were stressed 
We were taught Delsarte grace. When gestures of the hand; 
were used, they were to emphasize voice and facial expres 
sion. We were taught the '"feather movement 
leads the hand, for graceful gesturing. 

An elocution contest was given at the end of the yeai 
in Bucknell Hall. The members of the class '"spoke theii 
pieces." Three judges, unknown to the contestants, selectee 
the winner. The prize was $5.00. 

A "Soiree" was held by Fourth Form girls in the Semi 
nary, in the "School Room" of what is now known as 
Larison. It was at the top of the first flight of stairs ol 
the main building, facing College Hill. Opposite was a 
large room known as "The Parlor" where girls and faculty 

A stage was erected in the front of the "School Room" 
and Fourth Form girls presented a play to invited guests 
This was the Soiree. Our play was "Cinderella." The class 
was divided into groups of two's and three's, who wrote their 
versions of the tale. Selections were carefully made from 
these efforts and dramatized. The staging may have been 
simple but the costumes were GORGEOUS. They were 
rented from a Philadelphia theatrical firm and each girl 
paid for her own costume. The cost was around $5.00, 
But. oh. the thrills and the fun ! 

Early records show that a "Girls' Dramatic Club" was 
formally organized. October 1. 1901. However, from a list 
of plays given, the records show that one was presented 
November 26. 1900. These first plays were "A Box of 
Monkeys," "Sunset," and "Birds' Christmas Carol." 

JL ROM this club "Frill and Frown" may have originated. 
It was flourishing when our class entered the Seminary in 
1906. "Frill and Frown" presented plays in the "School 
Room." Morality. Shakespearean, and Greek plays were 
among those chosen. 

The U Agenda for the Class of 1915 gives as the organi- 
zation date of "Cap and Dagger." January 18, 1906. The 
two organizations were closely associated, and Miss Schillin- 
ger was the leading figure in both. She directed all their 
plays. The names chosen for the organizations were, prob- 
ably, suggested by her. The L" Agenda for 1901 has a pic- 
ture of a cast-of-characters, men and women in costume, and 
is captioned "Bucknell Dramatic Club." The title of the 
play is not given. This is one of the productions to be 
credited to Miss Schillinger. Possibly, "Frill and Frown" 
and "Cap and Dagger" made entrance on the dramatic scene 
as outgrowths of this organization. 

In the L Agenda for 1903 appears an interesting item 
under the date of February 1, 1903. "All will be glad to hear 



le Minstrel Association was organized today." All of us 
/ho knew her, can be sure that Miss Schillinger was around 
n that date. 

From one who knew her very well and who asks to be 
nonymous, comes this summation of duties: 'The compre- 
lensive terms Expression and Dramatic Arts are descriptive 
if her major professional fields of interest. The curriculum 
ncluded teaching of the following: classes in public speak- 
ng in the Institute and Academy; private lessons in dra- 
natic interpretation and speech correction ; story-telling : and 
hysical education." 

Aesthetic dancing, folk dancing, and drills played a great 
>art in the programs and pageants presented. In the early 
fears of the twentieth century, dancing was frowned upon 
>y the authorities. Even in the above mentioned innocent 
exhibitions prejudice was dealt with gradually and care- 
ully. Books on drama were almost nil in the Bucknell 
ibrary in those early days. Miss Schillinger cared for this 
jy buying many books for the use of her students. 

From the source quoted above: "her pursuit of the best 
n, subject matter and in technique continued through life. 
During vacations, it took her to the New York School of 
Dramatic Arts, the New York School of Expression, Colum- 
Dia University, the theatres of New York, and to famous 
eachers. Not only did she keep abreast of the new in her 
profession; she contributed to the creation of new." 

Part of Miss Schillinger's program was coaching the 
College seniors in their annual class play. This production 
was presented in Commencement Hall, as were the awarding 

I of degrees and other commencement festivities. Commence- 
ment Hall was on third floor of Old Main, a building for 
I ; men. It is needless to add, fire regulations were not what 
^'they are today. Dress rehearsal of the senior play was 
i party time and the director gave a party after final rehearsal. 
Mouths water at remembrance of the delicious food set 
) before us. Strawberries were in season, and how good they 
liwere dipped in powdered sugar ! One of the culinary arts 
Iwas making of "oriental creams." A marble top table was 
kept for the purpose in Miss Schillinger's room on third 
i: floor annex. The creams were molded thereon and covered 
I with thick, black, melted chocolate. 

Her irregular attendance at meals in the dining room 

made her a favorite in the kitchen where she went for a 
snack after a lesson during dinner hour. Many students 
came from out of town at odd hours when they were free 
to come, so this made for a flexible teaching schedule. 

The girls at her table missed her when she was absent. 
She always added interest with her wit. Her "do's and 
don'ts" on table etiquette enlivened a meal. Slips of paper 
were passed and the girls read the admonitions. One re- 
called is, "Do use your napkin after drinking milk — even 
cats wipe their whiskers." 

In addition to her Bucknell work, Miss Schillinger di- 
rected plays for local groups. For years she coached a play 
for theatre lovers in Milton. 

In 1914 she added another activity. The "Dramatic 
Trio" came into existence. Dora Hamler Weaver '14, Edgar 
C. Campbell '16, and the late Edward J. Richards '14 
formed this trio and gave recitals in nearby towns for 
several years. 

k_/PACE does not permit nor V Agenda records provide a 
complete listing of the dramatic productions and casts pre- 
sented under the direction of Miss Schillinger. However, 
more than 17 productions, with their casts, are listed 
in editions of the V 'Agenda published between 1905 and 
1919. The 1905 L 'Agenda lists a production of "Taming 
of the Shrew" by the Girls' Dramatic Club and included 
in the cast were Edith Kelly, Margaret Groff, Mary Stanton, 
Nellie Johnson and others. This production also included 
a curtain play, "A Pair of Lunatics" with Olive Schillinger 
and Emma Nesbit as the performers. Later that year the 
class play was "Charley's Aunt" and the Bucknell Dramatic 
Club presented "A Cheerful Liar." 

The 1906 U Agenda reports the following plays produced 
under the direction of Miss Schillinger: the senior class 
play, "What Became of Parker," which included in the cast 
E. P. Griffith, Harold Perrine. Carroll Caruthers, Olive Schil-

What is Homecoming? 


T T hat IS homecoming? Is it miles of chicken-wire? 
To hundreds of fraternity men who construct mammoth Bis- 
ons and Leopards to be mounted on floats, it certainly is. Is 
it thousands of paper napkins? Is it gallons of papier mache 
jmixture? Is it cans of paint? Certainly to hundreds of 
icoeds who help decorate the fraternity floats, it is. Bui 
'Homecoming is much more to the committee of 35 members 
including 11 students, 3 downtown merchants, 2 alumni offi- 
cers and 19 faculty and staff members who work for weeks 
prior to the celebration to prepare for the 16 scheduled events 
included in the two-day Homecoming program. This article 
is planned to tell you something of the serious business af- 
fairs of the University and The General Alumni Association 
that are conducted amid the hoopla of the football game, 
the Homecoming parade, the appearance of the Homecoming 
Queen and her court, and all of the other purely entertain- 
ment features of the occasion. 

Homecoming Is a Series of Business Meetings 

Of prime importance among the business sessions of 
Homecoming Week End is the semi-annual meeting of the 
15-member Board of Directors who direct the affairs of 
the alumni relations program. This Homecoming, Mrs. 
Clyde P. Bailey (Dorothy Lemon '29) conducted her first 
meeting of the Board of Directors as president of The Gen- 
eral Alumni Association. Fourteen of the 15 elected mem- 
bers were in attendance continuing an almost 100% record 
that has been established over the years. After reviewing 
the reports of committees, the Board tackled the problem 
of wider geographic representation. A survey conducted 
several years ago by Director Allen F. Jones '25 shows that 
the entire alumni population can be divided into fifteen geo- 
graphic districts from coast to coast with about equal 
alumni population in each. With a view to providing rep- 
resentation on the Board from areas outside the Middle 
Atlantic States in areas such as New England, the Middle 
West, the Far West, the South, and the Southwest, candi- 
dates have been sought from several of these farther-away 
districts. In the case of each nominee for election to the 
Board, the suggested candidate has been made aware of 
his or her obligations to attend at least two Board meetings 
each year on the campus and has agreed to the extra travel 
necessary, if elected. Consequently, voters need not hesi- 
tate to vote for a candidate living some distance from the 
campus. Again, this year an effort will be made to secure 
candidates from districts not now represented on the Board 
of Directors and the delegate body of representatives from 


all alumni clubs will be given an opportunity at the election 
on June 1, 1963, to secure representation from some of the 
outlying areas of alumni population. 

The Bison Club 

It is natural that athletics, and especially football, should 
be a feature attraction of Homecoming. But not all of the 
activities are in the nature of celebrations. For instance, 
on Friday afternoon of Homecoming Week End. the Athletic 
Advisory Committee, under the chairmanship of Benton 
Kribbs MS '59, Director of Athletics and Physical Education, 
met and made plans for the coming years' football sched- 
ules. Among the business items completed was the setting 
up of the projected football schedules through 1964 and 
partial scheduling of some of our traditional opponents 
through the 1967 season. 

On Friday evening, the Bison Club held its traditional 
reception open to all Bucknellians (wives included) at the 
Lewisburg Club where the football squads of 25 years ago. 
50 years ago, and the real "old-timers" ( more than 50 years 
ago ) were honored. 

Bright and early on Saturday morning (8:00 A. M.) the 
Bison Club held its semi-annual breakfast in the University 

The football squad of 1912, the golden anniversary team, was honored 
at the Homecoming luncheon on October 20, 1962. Pictured from 
I. to r. are: Russell C. Ship/nan '15 and Joseph W. Allen '15. 
Opposite Mr. Shipman is Erie M. Topham '15 and his wife, C. Ray 
Speare Topham '17. Several other members of the squad returned for 
Homecoming but are not pictured. 

Cafeteria. A memorial to the late Albert Humphreys, for- 
mer Director of Athletics and coach of the 25-year football 
squad of 1937, was read and presented by the 16 members 
of the 37-man squad who were in attendance. Mr. Peter 
Weidenbacher '50. a member of the Executive Committee 
of the Bison Club, presented 50-year medals to the 5 mem- 
bers (of the 6 surviving members) of the squad of 1912 
who were in attendance at the breakfast. The Third Annual 
Bison Club Award, a silver bowl, in recognition of service 
by one not directly connected with athletics at the University, 
but who has contributed to the success of the sports pro- 
gram, was presented to John H. "Buck" Shott "22, Alumni 

And More Committee Meetings 

Immediately after breakfast, business meetings of three 
alumni committees swung into action. The Class Reunion 
Planning Committee, with representatives from all of the 
five-year reunion classes (those whose numerals end in "3" 
and "8") met in joint session to complete plans for the 
June 1963 reunions. 

At the same time, the nine-member Committee on Nom- 
ination of Alumni Trustee was studying the biographical 
record of the 37 Alumni who had been suggested as possible 
candidates for the three places on the alumni trustee ballot. 
The winning candidates, selected by secret ballot of the 
committee members, are : 

MR. ROBERT W. DILL '27. Plymouth Meeting, Pa. 
CHARLES F. FOX, JR., M.D. '31, Vandergrift, Pa. 
DR. MORRIS D. HOOVEN '20, Montclair. N. J. 

Pictures and biographical descriptions of these three promi- 
nent Bucknellians will be published in the March 1963 issue 
of THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS. The purpose of the pub- 
lication of the biographies is to acquaint all Alumni with 
the outstanding records, of the candidates in order to permit 
full voting participation by all Alumni in the mail balloting 
that will be conducted in April 1963. Even though it is 
unlikely that all of our 19.000 Alumni will know these men 
personally, a study of their biographical records should per- 
mit every Alumnus to cast his ballot. In national, state 
and local elections, the voters rarely know the candidates 
well, yet a representative vote is cast in most elections. We 
would like to do as well and hope that all Alumni will study 
the biographies to be published in March and be prepared 
to vote when the ballot envelope arrives. 

The Alumni Awards Committee, consisting of former 
alumni award winners, was also in meeting at the same time 
studying the achievement, service and loyalty of 48 Alumni 
who had been suggested as possible recipients of the three 
alumni awards to be presented in June 1963. After a secret 
ballot, this committee chose a candidate for each of the three 
awards: For Meritorious Achievement in Business or the 
Professions, For Recognized Contributions and Service to 
Fellowmen, and For Outstanding Service, Unselfish Interest 
and Demonstrated Loyalty to the University and The Gen- 
eral Alumni Association. The results of this balloting are 
kept secret until the awards are presented at the All-Alumni 
Luncheon scheduled for June 1. 1963. 

The Homecoming Float Parade 

Meanwhile, the Homecoming float parade of 15 floats, 
5 bands and numerous convertibles filled with the Home- 
coming Queen and her court, the cheerleaders, and Alumni 
Association and Borough officials was forming under the 
direction of the Bucknell Department of Military Science 


I ROTC ) . An estimated 10,000 people viewed the parac 
while a group of judges scored the floats and bands f( 
the excellence of their preparation. Float winners wen 
first, Phi Kappa Psi and Kappa Kappa Gamma with the 
theme, "Can the Cats"'; second, Kappa Delta Rho an 
Alpha Chi Omega, with their float, "Lasso the Leopards' 
and third. Phi Lambda Theta and Second Floor Larisoi 
with the theme "Def-eat the Leopards." 

In the band competition, first prize went to the crac 
Central Dauphin High School Band, second to Troy Hig 
School and third prize to Hughesville High School Band, 

Women's dormitories also entered the Homecoming coir 
petition for house decorations, with Larison Hall winnin 
first prize, followed by German House and Seventh Stree 


The parade ended at the Davis Gymnasium where a pre 
game buffet and pep rally for Alumni, students, faculty, par 
ents. and guests was held. Following the luncheon, Mrs 
Dorothy Lemon Bailey '29, President of The General Alumn 
Association, in her capacity as mistress of ceremonies pre 
sented the Certificate of Service award to Mr. Robert W 
Dill '27 for his service as President of The General Alumn 
Association from 1960 to 1962. Dr. Merle M. Odgers 
President of Bucknell. presented a brief message of greeting 
after which Mrs. Bailey announced that Dr. Andrew R. E 
Wyant '92 had been elected to the National Football Hal 
of Fame and will be the recipient of the award in New Yorl 
on December 5, 1962. 

Next, the old-timers — the football squad of 1911 anc 
earlier, the Golden Anniversary Football Squad of 1912 anc 
the Silver Anniversary Football Squad of 1937 were present 
ed and applauded. 

The Homecoming Queen and her court were next pre 
sented and received a round of applause. The Queen, elected 
by vote of the undergraduate students, was Linda Hipp '63 
of Trenton, N. J. Her court consisted of Kathleen Gaynor 
'63. Harrington Park. N. J.; Use Ganz '64, Paramus, N. J. 
Ruth Gail Kille '64, Haddonfield, N. J.; Janet Irwin '65 
Locust Valley, N. Y.; Karen Horner '65, Johnstown; Judy 
Downe '66, Haworth. N. J.: and Elizabeth Griffith '66, of 

The Bison Band and cheerleaders, under the direction of 
Professor Allen W. Flock, next conducted a short pep rally 
and song session. During the musical part of the program, 
John C. Bank '10. organizer of the Bucknell Band during his 
student days, conducted the band in its presentation of "The 
Bucknell Medley." 

The Football Game 

Details of our football game with our Homecoming foe, 
Lafayette College, will be found on the sports page of THE 
BUCKNELL ALUMNUS. Suffice it here to say that the 
score was Bucknell — 28, Lafayette — 6. To make the week 
end sweeter, our freshman football team rolled over Gettys- 
burg 40-0 and Hank Peters' '39 soccer team routed Gettys- 
burg 7-1. For extra color at the football game, a pre-game 
parade of the Homecoming Queen and her court was held 
and just before the kickofi Linda Hipp, the Homecoming 
Queen, joined the captains of the opposing football squads 
for the tossing-the-coin ceremonies. An appropriate eulogy 
and moment of silence was observed in memory of the late 
Albert Humphreys, former Director of Athletics. Between 
the halves, the members of the football squad of 1937 were 
called to the field and saluted on their performance of 25 



I.jears ago. And of course, the Bison Band of Bucknell per- 

I jrmed in its usual high fashion, adding color to an already 

jierfect day. 

This year the usual Bison Reception in the gymnasium 

I 'as not held after the game because of poor attendance in 
:ecent years. It seems that nowadays the fraternities start 
heir Saturday evening celebrations earlier than in the past 
,-hich attract the Alumni from the post-game Bison Recep- 

lion. Instead an open house was held in the new Alumni 
feadquarters in the Administration Center. However, this 
vent was not well attended either and will probably be 
Iropped from the program in the future for lack of alumni 

Dedication of New TKE House 

A special feature of Homecoming this year was the dedi- 
cation of Bucknell's newest addition to "fraternity row"- 
ihe new Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity house on the hill. 
Participating in the ceremony were President Odgers; Dean 
Charles A. Meyn; Dr. Wesley N. Haines, Vice President for 
Development; Dean Russell A. Headley; Maj. Charles A. 
Dahmen; Dr. Wesley Shrader; Frank Scott, past TKE na- 
tional president; R. Landis Coffman, St., national officer of 
the fraternity; Hayes Thompson, head of the TKE Alumni 
Association: and William S. Liming '33, head of the TKE 
Board of Control.

The Evening Program 

Many of the Alumni not attending the engineering dinner 
were entertained at the fraternity houses or in the University 
dining rooms. Later in the evening, while many fraternity 
houses conducted social parties and dances, an all-campus 
dance and entertainment for Alumni, parents, and students 
was presented in Davis Gymnasium. At intermission time, 
seven fraternities competed in the Inter-fraternity Sing Con- 
test which was won by Delta Upsilon with Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon and Sigma Phi Epsilon in second and third place 
respectively. Also, during the intermission, Mr. Robert W. 
Dill '27, past president of The General Alumni Association, 
presented gifts to the Homecoming Queen, who, in turn, 
awarded prizes for the winning floats, best house decorations, 
and winners of the Inter-fraternity Sing Contest. 

\Bucknell Engineering Alumni Association Dinner 

At 6:00 P. M. Saturday evening, the annual dinner meet- 
ling of the Bucknell Engineering Alumni Association was 
held at the Lewisburg Club. Mr. M. Eugene Cook '43 pre- 
sided and introduced the speaker. Dr. Wesley N. Haines,

Research and Study of the Committee for State Constitu- 
tional Revision . . . 

Dr. Helmut R. Wagner, professor of sociology, has been 
elected president-elect of the Pennsylvania Sociological So- 
ciety. It marks the first time in the history of the society 
that a Bucknell professor has been so honored. Dr. Wag- 
ner's election is a reflection of the many contributions made 
by him to American sociology during the six years he has 
been at Bucknell. He will assume his new duties as presi- 
dent of the society next October . . . 

Dr. Roy C. Tasker, professor of biology, was honored 
at special convocation exercises held at Hillsdale College 
on November 9. He was among seven Alumni of Hillsdale 
selected for recognition at the College's annual Achievement 
Day ceremonies . . . 

Dr. Walter H. Sauvain, professor of education, has been 
elected vice president of the Pennsylvania Institutional 
Teacher Placement Association. Dr. Sauvain has been di- 
rector of teacher placement at Bucknell for a number of 
years and for the past two years has served as chairman 
of the Association's Committee on Coordination of Re- 
search . . . 

Dr. J. William Moore, associate professor of education, 
was presented a certificate two weeks ago by Dr. Charles 
H. Boehme. state superintendent of public instruction, in 
recognition of his outstanding contributions to education . . . 

Dr. William H. Harbaugh. professor of history, has been 
appointed to the Regional Selection Committee ( Pennsyl- 
vania and New Jersey) for the Woodrow Wilson National 
Fellowship Foundation . . . 


Bucknell's engineering departments have been reaccred- 
ited by the Engineers' Council for Professional Develop- 
ment and the Department of Chemistry has been retained on 
the approved list of the American Chemical Society. 

The Engineers' Council, top accrediting agency for en- 
gineering education, is composed of representatives from 
various professional societies in engineering. Report of 
Bucknell's continued accreditation was received by President 
Odgers following the annual meeting of the Council. The 
Council's Education and Accreditation Committee congra- 
tulated the University upon the progress made in engineering 
education since the last evaluation conducted in 1958. 

The American Chemical Society's Committee on Profes- 
sional Training submitted its favorable report on the Uni- 
versity's program of training in chemistry following a visit 
to the campus last spring. The Society's committee, which 
normally re-examines college chemistry programs aboul 
every five years, completed its study this fall and re-evalua- 
tion followed. 


Bucknell is offering the lollipop set a chance to go to 
"college" and they are snapping it up. 


Their "schedule"' includes French, mathematics, and sci 
ence classes that meet in Coleman Hall from four to five p. m 
three days each w r eek. 

Over 400 Lewisburg area pupils from grades two througl. 
six are taking part in the program originated by Dr. Maurice 
Hillson, associate professor of education and coordinatoi 
of elementary education at Bucknell. Given without cost 
to the public school system or to the pupils, its purpose is to 
serve as an enrichment program for the youngsters and to 
give prospective teachers pre-student-teaching experience 
and a chance to work closely with children. 

Twenty-nine Bucknell coeds majoring in elementary edu 
cation are in charge of these late afternoon classes. The 
work is not duplicated in the regular school curriculum. 

As Dr. Hillson points out, the program is not a remedial 
one, nor is it aimed at helping youngsters who are having 
academic difficulties in school. 

The bulk of the teaching is clone by juniors majoring in 
education. They are "backed up" by sophomores who will 
teach the classes next year. Sophomores are thus offered 
their initial professional experience. 

Approximately 120 seven to eleven year-olds converge 
on the education department every Tuesday for work in 
mathematics. They are divided into groups, based on ability 
The 165 who come to the campus on Wednesdays for a 
workshop in science meet in eight groups. Instruction in 
French, the most popular course this semester, is given to 
140 children in six different sections. Dr. Stephen D. Con 
don. of the French department, advises as to the accuracy 
and depth of the presentation of the language. Alan Bee- 
man, assistant professor of education, oversees new methods 
for the presentation of languages, and both Dr. Condon and 
Dr. Hillson are currently studying the planning in mathema- 
tics and science. 

Believing that the project adds a new dimension to the 
prospective teacher. Dr. Hillson is of the opinion that it also 
offers a chance to see how far a child can stretch his mind. 

The lollipop chemists. 


Do the grade schoolers enjoy their classes? Their en- 
I nusiastic participation and the fact that few "cut", or play 
&ooky, would indicate that they do, Dr. Hillson says. 


That old joke ahout the golfer at the Bucknell Golf Cluh 
looking at his partner and asking, "Which shall we play 
oday, the front nine or the hack nine?" appears to be 
• loomed. The Golf Course Committee, with the approval 
I)f the Board of Trustees, and after discussion at an open 
neeting of the membership, has awarded the contract for 
(he construction of an additional nine holes. The present 
iiine holes will be integrated into the new 18-hole layout 
vithout interruption of use. Four of the new holes and a 
xind to serve as a water hazard will be constructed on the 
i jresent acreage. Five holes will be constructed on the college 
farm land just southwest of the present course. Rough con- 
struction will be done this fall, with seeding scheduled for

! Three scholarships, two of them honoring long-time mem- 
bers of the faculty and administration, have been estab- 
lished recently. 

One is a memorial to Dr. William G. Owens '80, a mem- 
[ber of the University faculty for 55 years as a teacher of 
! chemistry. It was established by Dr. Owens' daughter. 
Mrs. Jeanette Owens Burnet '17. of St. Petersburg, Florida. 
The scholarship will aid a worthy student with preference 
given to one majoring in chemistry. 

A bequest known as the John T. Judd Scholarship has 
been established by the late Anna C. Judd '00, in memory 
of her father. Mr. Judd served for many years as treasurer 
of Bucknell and as a member of the board of trustees. The 
scholarship is to aid a student of good character. 

The third bequest, given by Mrs. Elizabeth Lehr Mc- 
Carthy T7, in memory of her son, is known as the John 
Lehr McCarthy Scholarship. The scholarship will be award- 
ed to a worthy student.

there was a period of swapping stories, and a brief report 
by Chairman Norman Stewart on organization and future 

The group was then favored with solos by Miss Patricia 
Jones '66 and Miss Virginia Williams '64, students at the 
University. After the singing, Professor John B. Miller '26 
invited the group to retrace with him by colorful lantern 
slides the ten thousand mile trip he and his wife took to 
our national parks in the Rockies. Through the pictures 
he brought vividly to life the gorgeous scenery of the moun- 
tains, the skies, the peaks, the canyons and waterfalls, the 
flowers, birds, and game animals. By a show of hands the 
happy group favored having two meetings a year. 


Dr. Hulda Magalhaes, professor of zoology, is contribut- 
ing valuable information on hamsters to the JJFAW Hand- 
book, a British publication dealing with the care, raising, 
and feeding of experimental animals. The book is pub- 
lished by the United Federation for Animal Welfare. 

Robert M. Ewing, associate professor of English, has 
contributed a section on newspapers in Modern Journalism, 
a book published last month by the Pitman Publishing 
Corp., New York. 


A roast beef dinner, topped with pumpkin pie, and a 
jolly time marked the third annual party of Bucknell's retired 
persons and friends at the Conference Center at Cowan on 
Saturday evening, October 27, 1962. Over fifty old friends 
heard greetings sent by President Merle M. Odgers, Vice 
President John F. Zeller '41, Dean Mark C. Ebersole and 
others as far away as Florida. Following the dinner, ar- 
ranged by the secretary, Mr. Forrest D. Brown and his wife.

GEORGE L. ABERNETHY '32, and Thomas A. Langford 

Philosophy of Religion 

The Macmillan Company, New York, 1962 

Professors Abernethy and Langford have provided us 
with a book of readings on the philosophy of religion. The 
volume contains sixty-one selected readings, each one listed 
under one of seven main headings: "I. The Nature of Re- 
ligion;" "II. Relation of Philosophy of Religion to Theol- 
ogy;" "III. The Problem of the Existence of God:" "IV. 
How to Know God: Some Contemporary Answers;" "V. 
Religious Language;" "VI. The Problem of Evil;" "VII. 
Immortality and Eschatology." These headings will be rec- 
ognized immediately as the traditional problems in the 
philosophy of religion, except that this volume, unlike many 
of the more recent texts, includes a section on "Religious 

The entire volume has a contemporary focus and, in this 
respect, differs from comparable works. The contention of 
the authors is that much recent work in philosophy-theology 
"is significant and should be better known. The distinctive 
contributions and claims of both theologians and philoso- 
phers have moved far beyond the positions of the early nine- 
teen-hundreds." And the content of the book clearly reflects 
this point of view. While the book contains readings from 
the works of Platinus. Acquinas. Maimonides. Anselm, and 
other pre-modern thinkers, the book is intended primarily 
to acquaint the student with present-day thought. Tillich. 
Buber, Barth, Berdyaev, Ayer, Jaspers, Feuerbach, Fromm, 
Brunner — these are but a few of the outstanding persons 
of the modern world whose thought is represented in this 

Philosophy of Religion is a much-needed volume and 
should be received enthusiastically by both students and 
faculty throughout the country. It is an excellent introduc- 
tion to contemporary religious thought, providing a solid 
basis for the discussion of philosophical issues in religion. 
Even the student without an orientation to philosophy and 
religion should have little difficulty finding his way through 
this volume: each one of the sixty-one readings has been 
carefully selected and the authors have written a clear and 
concise introduction for each of the seven main divisions 
of the book. There is every reason to believe that this vol- 
ume will find its way into a large number of classrooms in 
America's colleges and universities.

Drug Therapy 

Lea and Febiger, Philadelphia. 1962 

This new publication is designed to aid physicians with 
the choice of proper therapeutic agents. The book con- 
tains concise information on many pharmacological agents 

covering all the major areas of therapy. The material 
current and keeps pace with the latest therapeutic advance 

The book obviously could not be recommended as 
pharmacology textbook as many items necessary for th 
study of pharmacologic principles and general pharm; 
cology are absent; however, as the author states this is nc 
intended to be a text book and he has avoided including an 
material not directly pertinent to the clinical applicatio 
of drugs. 

The physical layout of the entire book is uniform an 
quite good. The sections are divided into a discussion o 
the general pharmacology of a particular class of drugs 
followed by a section on choice of drug which points ou 
outstanding differences, side reactions, etc., of a certaii 
class of drugs, lists the agents available for therapeutic usi 
in the class, and discusses briefly which agent would be o 
most value in a particular case. Following this is a section oi 
clinical usage which mentions general usage, dose forms 
dosage schedules, routes of administration, combinatior 
therapy, etc. The final section is limited to a discussion oi 
a few specific agents thought by the author to be represen 
tative of and to be better than, or at least as good as, an) 
of the drugs listed under choice of drug for the particulai 
class. Here again the pharmacology is given in some de 
tail if it differs considerably from the general activity ol 
the class. Also, many good preparations are mentionec 
here with their generic and trade names and dose schedules 
This form is good for it necessitates that the reader familiar 
ize himself with the general pharmacology and clinical usage 
of a particular class of drugs before he makes a choice of 
a specific therapeutic agent. 

The book seems to be excellent for what is intended. 
The specific discussion is limited to a very few drugs and 
it seems that at times other agents equally effective or per 
haps even better could have been discussed in more detail: 
however, the physician's choice of a drug is often a matter 
of personal experience and as the author states, ". . . this 
book is entirely a compendium of personal opinion."

Communications Dictionary 

New York: John F. Rider Publisher. Inc.. April 1962 

A graduate of Bucknell University with a B.S. in Elec- 
trical Engineering, James F. Holmes has been closely asso- 
ciated with the communications field for many years. A 
Navy veteran with six years service, followed by four years 
of college, Mr. Holmes began his business career as a pro- 
duction engineer. This opened the door to facility develop- 
ment and culminated in design and construction activities 
for Sylvania Electric Products' Data Processing Center in 
Camillus, N. Y. 

The early and intriguing association with the computer 
supplier (Remington Rand) and the communication supplier 
(Western Union) resulted in a transfer to the data process- 
ing activity and led to the original collection of terms result- 
ing in this publication. This collection of terms has served 
well in the change from industrial communications data 
processing activity. 

Mr. Holmes is presently with American Can Company as 
corporate administrator, communications. He is a member 
of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and a reg- 
istered professional engineer. 





On Saturday, October 13, thirty Alumni attended the 
Bison Roundup held before the Lehigh football game at 
Bethlehem. President Odgers; John F. Zellers III '41, vice 
president — business and finance: Walter C. Geiger '34, di- 
rector of physical plant: John H. Shott '22, alumni secretary; 
C. Bruce Rossiter '56, assistant alumni secretary; and their 
wives attended the affair. Also, the president of Lehigh Uni- 
versity, Dr. Harvey A. Neville, and his wife were honored 

A delicious buffet lunch was served at the Lehigh Uni- 
versity Center. Dr. Curtis W. Clump '47, president of the 
Bueknell Alumni Club of Lehigh Valley and a member of 
|the faculty at Lehigh, made the arrangements. 


After several years of inactivity, the Bueknell Alumni 
Club of Lycoming County held a very successful dinner on 
October 8, at the Young Men's Republican Club in Williams- 
port. Thirty-two Alumni, two prospective Bucknellians, and 
eleven representatives from the campus attended the dinner. 

The speaker for the evening was Gene Evans MS '53, 
newly elected basketball coach at the University. Gene gave 
an inspiring talk and was enthusiastically received by every- 
one in attendance. Also, seven coeds provided musical en- 
tertainment during the evening. They were: Roberta New- 
comer '63, Gail Anderson '63, Virginia Williams '64, Jean 
Sawyer '63, Kendra Budd '64, Marty McCord '63, and 
Jane Morrison '63. 

Accompanying Mr. Evans to the meeting from the campus 
were Alumni Secretary John H. Shott '22, and his wife, 
and C. Bruce Rossiter '56, assistant alumni secretary. 

The dinner meeting was organized by president of the 
group Robert D. Smink '26, and secretary and treasurer, 
Luther M. Ertel '54. John C. Decker '36 gave the invocation 
and James E. Logue '54 served as toastmaster for the 


Alumni and Bison fans who attended the Bucknell-Dela- 
ware game in Newark. Del., on November 17 saw. perhaps, 
one of the most exciting and best-played football games of 
this or any year. And. following the game, over 70 Alumni 
and friends attended one of the best Bison Roundups ever 
sponsored by the Bueknell Alumni Club of Wilmington. 

Held at the beautiful Cavalier's Club near Newark, the 
after-the-game get-together was in charge of Forrest D. 
Brown, Jr. '50, president of the club. 


Pennsylvania Baptist ministers who are Bucknellians, 
along with their friends, attended the traditional Bueknell 
Baptist Luncheon held annually at the Pennsylvania Baptist 
Convention in Uniontown on October 18, 1962. Bueknell 

Alumni living in the Uniontown club area were also invited 
to attend the luncheon. 

The luncheon was well-attended and the group enjoyed 
the presentation of a campus report given by the Rev. Dr. 
Wesley Shrader, pastor of the Baptist Church in Lewisburg, 
who works closely with the Baptist student group on the 
campus. Following the talk, an interesting discussion on 
church attendance by college age students was conducted. 
In 1963, the Pennsylvania Baptist Convention is scheduled 
to meet in Philadelphia. 


The Bueknell Alumni Club of Long Island will celebrate 
Bucknell's 117th birthday on Friday evening, February 1, at

V_^ ERTAIN factors believed to have an influence on adult 
social behavior are the subject of a research study at Buck- 
nell directed by Dr. Douglas Candland, assistant professor 
of psychology and coordinator of graduate study, and a staff 
of nine members. The project is being carried on through 
grants from the National Institutes of Health. 

Among the questions Bucknell psychologists are attempt- 
ing to answer are: How do events which occur in infancy 
affect the social behavior of an adult? Why do animals 
develop dominate or submissive personalities as typified by 
the cow that leads the herd home in the evening or the chick- 
en that is 'pecked' on by the other chickens in the flock? 

Dr. Candland and his staff are using the evolutionary 
approach to the study of behavior, utilizing a variety of sub- 
human forms including mammals, birds, fish, and fowl. At 
present the investigators are working with guppies, ham- 
sters, chickens, laboratory rats, parakeets, and cats. The 
laboratories, housed in Coleman Hall, are especially adapted 
for psychological research. The rooms are temperature 
controlled and equipped for modern care and maintenance 
of laboratory animals. There are facilities for raising from 
birth 1.000 rats. 100 chickens, 300 fish, 30 cats, and 30 

Dr. Candland said his staff's research thus far indicates 
that higher animals such as rats and chickens prefer to be 
with other animals only if they grew up with others from 

Animals raised with toys such as yo-yos, rubber balls, 
and rattles bring out the fact that those animals develop 
a preference for toys or objects only if they have not grown 

up with members of their own family group, according to Dr. 
Candland. By determining the relation between events that 
occur in infancy on adult behavior in several forms of life, 
Bucknell psychologists hope to find some clue as to how 
humans are affected by infantile experiences. 

The psychologists watch each research animal grow into 
its adult life to measure what, if any, effects such as mental 
illness in humans, for example, develop as a result of experi 
ence in early life. 

Most animals tested in the Bucknell laboratories show a 
predictable dominance order in which one animal always 
has territorial rights over others. The order is most per- 
sistent in fowl, cows, and sheep and weakest in rodents, such 
as rats and hamsters. 

Dr. Candland and his staff are trying to discover whether 
intelligence, as measured by maze running and conditioning 
tests, is related to the dominance order and whether this 
order can be changed experimentally once it has been 

Assisting Dr. Candland with the research study are the 
following undergraduate and graduate students: Jack Cul- 
bertson '63, of Erie; Clemm Kessler '63, of Glen Ridge, 
N. J.; Charles Furst '64, of Red Bank, N. J.; John Morgan 
'65, of Houston, Tex.; Carol Stoltz '64, of New York City; 
Paulette Dutkus '63, of Fairlawn, N. J.; Daniel Conklyn 
'61, of Arlington, Va.; Silas White, of Philadelphia, who 
did his undergraduate work at Lycoming College; and Don- 
ald MacNeil, of Westfield, N. J., a Lafayette alumnus taking 
graduate work at Bucknell. 




What Are They Doing? 

by Katherine Shimer 
Public Relations Staff 


etirement hasn't meant inactivity for at least a 
" dozen emeriti professors at Bucknell University. 

For example, in 1956, Warren D. Garman, former pro- 
fessor of mechanical engineering, was "retired" only two 
days until he began work as a consulting engineer for Ly- 
coming Division of Avco Manufacturing Company in Wil- 
liamsport. Mr. Garman professes to "cutting down a little 
bit," by commuting to the city industrial plant just three 
days a week instead of five as he did immediately after 
leaving Bucknell about six years ago. However, he points 
out, this gives him more time to devote to private consulting 
work — something else he has been doing since retirement 
from the teaching field. 

A prolific writer for more than 60 years. Dr. Lewis E. 
Theiss '02 retired from the University in 1946, but not from 
writing. Now 84 years old, Dr. Theiss has in recent months 
published articles in seven different magazines and papers. 
The topics range from "Ever Try to Raise Figs?" which 
appeared in The Pennsylvania Farmer, to a biographical 
sketch of Genevieve Blatt. Pennsylvania Secretary of Inter- 
nal Affairs. 

Dr. John W. Rice '14 retired as professor of bacteriology 
three years ago, but by his own admission he is as much in 
circulation now as before. Active for many years in the 
field of public health, Dr. Rice still runs a once-a-week check 
on the University water supply and twice each week tests 
the water in Freas-Rooke swimming pool in Davis Gym- 
nasium. Bacteriologist Rice does a series of samples of 
market milk four times each year for the communities of 
Lewisburg and Mifflinburg, and tests samples of each dif- 
ferent kind of ice cream sold in Mifflinburg. These duties, 
originally scheduled to fill Dr. Rice's Tuesdays and Thurs- 
days, have expanded to include his Mondays, Wednesdays 
and Fridays as well. 

Although confined to his home because of ill health. Dr. 
William H. Coleman, a former vice president and dean of 
Bucknell, devotes his time to reading and welcoming visitors. 

Dr. Charles M. Bond, professor emeritus of religion, who 
has suffered from ill health for about a year, describes him- 
self as "fully retired." 

Miss Harriet A. Love M.S. '44, one-time professor of 
economics, still works with the law of supply and demand. 
She helps her brother in his general store in the community 
of Waterville. 

That longed-for time for traveling is one of the ad- 
january 1963 

vantages some former professors find in their retirement. 
Others use their leisure to pursue photography. Dr. Robert 
L. Matz and William H. Schuyler 15 both claim these hob- 
bies as rewards for time well spent. Dr. Matz served 
Bucknell as a professor of business administration. He is 
now vice president and a director of the Lewisburg National 
Bank. Mr. Schuyler held the faculty rank of assistant pro- 
fessor of chemical engineering. One of his most avid inter- 
ests continues to be photography and he holds membership 
in the Sunbury Camera Club. Harold A. Shaffer '13, 
recently retired engineering drawing professor, claims no 
hobbies or duties at present and describes himself as "just 
enjoying retirement." Professor Frank A. Sprague, of the 
Spanish department, retired in 1960 because of ill health, 
and his activities, he states, center around gardening and 

An activity started some years before his retirement — 
that of editing a publication for Geisinger Medical Center 
— is still carried on for the hospital by Dr. Floyd G. Ballen- 
tine '99, former professor of Latin and literature and secre- 
tary of the faculty. Retirement is also giving Dr. Ballentine 
the time to do extensive reading in his own and other fields. 

Dr. Norman H. Stewart, professor of zoology while on 
the Bucknell faculty, tried an entirely different field upon his 
retirement — that of selling. And he describes his work as 
salesman for an investment firm as "very stimulating." 
Interestingly, Dr. Stewart still finds time for oil painting, 
and one of his canvases will be hung in Coleman Hall with 
an exhibit planned for the near future. 

Several near-by high schools draw on William T. John- 
son's '18 knowledge and experience in the field of teaching 
history by calling on him for substitute teaching work. And 
although retired, Mr. Johnson keeps up his efforts and inter- 
ests in education by serving on the Lewisburg School 
Board, a job he has held for more than 10 years. 

Dr. Adolf Frantz took the advice of Horace Greeley to 
"Go West, young man," and at the termination of his work 
as head of the German department at Bucknell last June, 
he accepted a two-year appointment as a full professor of 
German at Arizona State University. 

Dr. George A. Irland '15 is giving full time to the presi- 
dency of the Citizens' Electric Company in Lewisburg. He 
received this appointment before his retirement from the 
electrical engineering department in June. Dr. Irland also 
lists himself among those retirees who enjoy traveling and

I he Lambert Cup and the Middle Atlantic Conference 
championship were at stake when the Bisons met Delaware 
in the final game of the season on November 17. We lost 
both, but still finished with a very fine season and the team 
that represented Bucknell on the football field for nine 
straight Saturdays is one that surprised many people during 
the course of the campaign. It was one of the most exciting 
teams we have seen here in a long time. 

Solid victories over Lafayette and Muhlenberg, a 28-0 
loss to a strong Buffalo team in the rain and snow, and a 
convincing win over Colgate preceded the thrilling finale 
at Newark, Del. 

Eight different players broke into the scoring column in 
the rout of the Mules and the third unit played the final six- 
teeen minutes of the game. We gained well over 400 yards 
on the ground and in the air and seven Bisons were honored 
on the Muhlenberg first and second all-opponent teams. 
End Phil Morgan, tackle Jeff Fichter. guard Tom Boyd and 
fullback Dave Reitze were on the first unit, and Captain Dick 
Tyrrell, center George Rieu and guard Dick Orlowski were 
on the second team. 

Buffalo came to town looking for its first victory over 
Bucknell in four years and the Bulls went home with the 
object of their search. Quarterback John Stofa. one of 
several fine signal callers the Bisons went up against this

season, bucked the elements and ran and threw with the 
best of them. Center Dick Hort intercepted two passes, 
tackles Gerry Philbin and Kevin Brinkworth were standouts 
in the line and end Larry Gergley was outstanding on both 
offense and defense. 

The Bull defense throttled Ron Giordano in this game, 
but the little senior left-hander came back the next week 
against Colgate to put on a one-man show. "Gio" passed 
for four touchdowns (a school record), threw two conver-j 
sion passes and ran for two conversions to account for 
all of the points in the 32-14 victory. 

Ron also set school records with 267 yards passing and 
269 yards total offense and broke the season passing records 
for attempts, completions and yards in this game. In addi 
tion to the 267 yards gained by passing, the Bisons rolled 
up 171 yards running against the Red Raiders. 

Giordano tossed 18 yards to Tyrrell and ten yards to 
Morgan for touchdowns in the second quarter and threw 42 
yards to Morgan in the third period and ten yards to Mike 
Connell in the final quarter. Colgate sophomore Gerry 
Barudin ran for two scores in the second period to narrow 
the Bisons' halftime margin to 16-14. but the Bisons made 
three fine defensive stands in the second half to preserve 
the victory. Connell caught seven passes in the game, Mor 
gan hauled in six and Rene Clements snared three of Gior- 
dano's aerials. 

The Blue Hen team that posted a 9-6 victory over Buck- 
nell in the final game has been named the number one small 
college team in the East this season. Coach Dave Nelson's 
squad is one of the best that the Bisons have seen in recent 
years and can do almost everything well. The line led by 
tackle Paul Chesmore and guard Jim Quirk led the MAC in 
rushing defense, there are a host of good running backs, 
the pass defense did a pretty good job against Giordano, and! 
the Blue Hens used second string quarterback Chuck Zolak; 
to show that they could also pass. 

Two Delaware interceptions, one by halfback Clint Ware 
who was a standout all afternoon, halted Bison drives in the 
first half. Connell came up w 7 ith a big interception on the 
ten-yard line to stop the first Blue Hen drive, but late in 
the second quarter Zolak tossed seven yards to Ware who| 
made a diving catch in the end zone for a touchdown. 

We came right back down the field, but time ran out with 
the ball on the six-yard line. Bucknell took the second half 
kickoff and marched down to the ten-yard line, but an offside 
penalty and a fumble by Giordano on the one-yard line, 
killed the rally. A 12-yard field goal by kicking specialist; 
John Osborn gave Delaware a 9-0 lead in the third period, 
but the Bisons came right back after the all-important kick 
to march 69 yards in eleven plays for a touchdown. Connell 
dove over from one yard out for the TD, but Gio was dumped 
while attempting to pass for the conversion. The final 
Bison threat was halted when Karl Lorenz intercepted a 
Giordano pass with less than three minutes remaining in the 

This was one of the finest games played in the East this 
season and both teams really gave some 9.200 fans plenty of) 
tin ills and excitement. 

At the annual post-season football banquet junior guards 
Tom Boyd. Havertown. and Bill Swineford. Lewistown, were 
elected co-captains of the 1963 team. This is the first time 
in five years that Bucknell has elected co-captains. 

Two post-season bowl games had representatives from 
Bucknell this year. Quarterback Ron Giordano and center: 
George Rieu were members of the East team in the fifth an-| 
nual Gem City Bowl Game in Erie, on November 21 and! 



'Giordano was a quarterback on the small school squad in 
the All-American Bowl game played at Tucson, Arizona, 
on December 29. Rene Clements and Dick Tyrrell were 
scheduled to play in the game at Erie, but were sidelined 
with injuries. 

Giordano was chosen the most valuable player in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference by the conference coaches and 
earned a berth on the All-MAC first team along with Tyrrell 
and Clements. Tyrrell is the third player who has been 
named to the first team for three straight years. The others 
were Paul Terhes and Lafayette's Charlie Bartos. 

Tom Boyd was named to the MAC second unit and Phil 
Morgan, tackle Bob Brown, guard Dick Orlowski, Rieu, 
Connell and fullbacks Dave Reitze and Bob Haering received 
honorable mention. 

Tyrrell and Giordano were named to the second All- 
Pennsylvania team, Connell was on the third team and 
Clements, Rieu and Brown received honorable mention on 
the squad selected by the Associated Press. Giordano's other 
honors included ECAC All-East, AP All-East (honorable 
mention), MAC passing and total offense leader, UPI All- 
American ( honorable mention ) , AP Little All-American 
(honorable mention) and Gettysburg all-opponent. 

Tyrrell was the outstanding lineman on the Lehigh all- 
opponent team, received the most votes on the Gettysburg all- 
opponent team and was on the UPI All-East third team. 
Clements was on the Lehigh all-opponent team and was 
named to the ECAC team of the week after the game with 
the Engineers. Connell won the MAC punting title, Morgan 
was the conference pass receiving leader and Garrity was 
selected on the ECAC team of the week after the Muhlenberg 

The frosh football team dropped a 7-0 decision to Lehigh 
in the rain and mud at Bethlehem in the final game of the 
season to close out with a 3-1 record. 

Captain Bill Dahl tied a school season record with 11 
goals and led the Bison soccer team to a 5-3-1 record this 
season. The Bison booters finished third in the Northern 
Division of the MAC and lost only to Elizabethtown, Navy 
and Penn State. The tie was a 2-2 deadlock with Lehigh. 
Sophomore Bill Goulding backed up Dahl in the scoring 
column as Hank Peters' team posted victories over Temple. 
Lafayette, Gettysburg, Delaware and Muhlenberg. 

Juniors diet Bushnell. Rochester. N. Y., and Doug May, 
Walpole, Mass., have been elected co-captains of the 1963 
soccer team. Bushnell has beeen a starting fullback for the 
past two years and May is an inside. 

Giordano's appearance in the All-American Bowl officially 
brought the fall season to a close, but the winter sports 
teams are already hard at work, and early indications point 
to a fairly successful campaign on all fronts. 

The basketball team, under new head coach Gene Evans, 
won two of its first three games, including a big 67-59 upset 
over Cornell at Ithaca. The Bisons also downed Washington 
and Jefferson in the season opener and lost to Buffalo. 

The team is relatively inexperienced and lacks height, 
but lots of hustle, a solid defense and some good shooting 
could pay off in some important victories this winter. Lorry 
Hathaway, a 6-4 sophomore center from Mt. Lebanon, aver- 
aged 21.7 points and 16.7 rebounds in the first three games, 
and John Matthews, a 6-0 soph guard from Bethlehem, aver- 
aged 13.7 points. They were the big guns in the victory over 
the Big Red. 

The other starters are Sam Penrose, a 6-4 junior from 
Norristown, Don Hester, a 6-2 junior from Punxsutawney. 


and Captain Tom Johnson, a 5-9 senior from Pittsburgh. 
Penrose had a 12.0 average after three games and was also 
the number two rebounder. 

Bob Latour's swimming team and Fred Prender's wres- 
tlers open the season on January 5, but pie-season practice 
sessions have been very encouraging and both squads should 
make strong bids for Middle Atlantic Conference titles. 

Jim Koehn, a senior 123 pounder from Lancaster, has 
been elected captain of the wrestling team, and senior Bob 
Ayers, Sea Girt, N. J., and Robin Harris, Westfield, N. J., 
are the co-captains of the swimming team. 

Koehn and juniors John Coyle and Glenn Dussinger are 
the top returning lettermen on the wrestling squad. Juniors 
Clint Condict, Tom Sells and John Weinmann are the other 
lettermen on the swimming team. In the second annual 
freshman-varsity swimming meet held on December 8, the 
varsity set a pool record of 3:34.0 in the final freestyle relay 
to pick up a hard-earned 51-44 victory. The team was com- 
posed of sophomores John Shields, Jim Smigie, Jack Flem- 
ing and Bob Nadal. The frosh team of Jack McAllister. 
Phil Reynolds, Jerry Thimme and Townley Larzelere won 
the 400-yard medley relay in 3:57.7, only two-tenths of a 
second over the pool record.

lets push 

the UP button 

In the September 1962 issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS (page 10) we carried a report under the heading: 
UP." This article presents further reasons why and how the 
Alumni Fund this year will go up. 

In 1959, when the Annual-Giving Fund was merged 
with the Dual Development Campaign, we agreed that there 
would be no Alumni Fund general solicitation during the 
Dual Development Campaign in the hope that maximum 
effort in giving would be concentrated on the Dual Develop- 
ment Campaign. Now that the campaign is successfully 
ended, we resume full solicitation for the Bucknell Alumni 
Annual-Giving Fund — except for the 1,839 Alumni who did 
not make their three-year cash payments or pledges until 
1960 or after. 

Annual-Giving Is Habit Forming 

Prior to Dual Development a good many Bucknellians 
had formed the habit of Annual-Giving. The three-year in- 
terruption in Fund solicitation may have relaxed the habit 
of Annual-Giving for many of us, but we are sure it is not 
broken. In fact, we are sure this 1962-63 Fund year will 
show a re-inforcement and spread of the Annual-Giving 
habit. Increased alumni support is needed more than ever 
by the University to maintain its present level of current 
budget operations and to support its expanding capital devel- 
opment. Furthermore, maintaining and improving the level 
and percentage of participation by Bucknellians in the An- 
ual-Giving Fund is vital to winning further capital support 
for the University among foundations, corporations, and 
individuals who are not Bucknellians. 

Most Annual Funds Go Up 

A recent survey of 21 schools and colleges emerging 
from a capital campaign showed that the Annual-Giving 
Fund went up — as much as 34% — after a capital campaign. 
However, such results do not happen automatically. They 
come only when Alumni — more than before — push the UP 

Your Board of Directors and the Alumni Fund Com- 
mittee have been planning for the 1962-63 program of the 
Alumni Annual-Giving Fund since last spring. After a 
study of the results of the Dual Development Campaign 
and the revival of fund solicitation after a capital cam- 
paign on other campuses, approval was given for the intro- 
gram of enrolling any Alumnus, former student, or friend 
of the University who contributes $100 or more to the 1962- 
63 Annual-Giving Fund as a charter member of the WIL- 

Many universities already have their ''Century Club," 
"President's Club," etc.. and for many years Bucknell has 

recognized FOUNDERS (donors of $10,000 or more) and 
PATRONS (donors of $1,000 or more, but less than $10,- 
a new category of distinction. 

1962-63 Fund Goal 

refined at a workshop session held on the campus on August 
10-11, attended by the Board of Directors of The General 
Alumni Association, club presidents, and alumni fund work- 
ers from the Middle Atlantic Area representing a great ma- 
jority of the total alumni population. On that occasion it 
was agreed that for the current Fund year, we should strive 
for a minimum of $80,000, believing that we have a jair 
potential for $100,000 and should keep in mind a challenge 
goal of $125,000 in the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving 
Fund for the current 1962-63 year. To reach these goals. 
it was felt that we should strive for William Bucknell Asso- 
ciate memberships in amounts of 500 members, 700 members 
or 900 members to reach respective goals. 

Pursuant to this decision, personal solicitation has been 
organized in 18 alumni areas this year. With results still 
incomplete, total William Bucknell Associate memberships 
have now reached 150 members. This is already twice the 
number giving $100 or more in the 1958-59 Fund year. 

Cant Everybody Be a 
William Bucknell Associate? 

From the estimates of William Bucknell Associate mem- 
bership for this year, it is evident that not all Alumni can 
be expected to achieve William Bucknell Associate member- 
ship this year. However, there can be no question that many, 
many more Alumni now contributing less than $100 annually 
could raise their sights to Associate level. And for the many 
Alumni who may not reach the Associate level this year, 
there is still the vital goal of a higher percentage of partici- 
pation — so carefully examined by foundations and corpora- 
tions — to strive for. Over the years well over half of our 
Alumni have contributed to the Bucknell Alumni Fund, but 
in any one year the percentage of participation has never 
reached more than 29%. In other words, we could have 
a whopping 50% participation if all of us who have played 
at some time or other could get our violins tuned at the same 
time this year. 

One of the most pressing needs Bucknell has is that of 
unrestricted and expendable dollars — the type provided by 
Annual-Giving. For those of us who believe in private 
education and want to DO something about it, this is our 
best way of pitching in. We've all heard that "support the 
college of your choice" commercial. This is the year to 
support the college of "OUR" choice by pushing the up 
button together. 

Partners in Progress 

In 195-1. General Electric Company pioneered a "match- 
ing gift program" that has since been adopted by almost 200 
other outstanding American corporations. While the pro- 
grams vary somewhat, in general, these industries offer to 
match every dollar that an Alumnus contributes to his or 
her Alma Mater. Industry has become increasingly aware 
of the importance to their very existence of colleges who 
furnish them with educated employees. They also know 
that many young men and women could not afford a college 
education if tuition rates were raised to a figure that would 
fully cover the cost of a year's education. Because both 



the Alumnus and the industry are the ultimate beneficiaries, 
the latter are adopting programs to share the costs of these 

Every Bucknellian who is employed should find out if 
his company has such a program and should use the plan 
of "double dollars." Companies conducting gift matching 
programs provide a simple form to be filled out and mailed 
to Bucknell along with the contribution of the Alumnus. The 
number of cooperating firms is increasing rapidly so in- 
quiries should be made each time a contribution is sent to 
the University. Unfortunately, our alumni occupational 
records are never completely up-to-date, so that we can not 
always spot the gifts of Alumni connected with gift match- 
ing companies. Thus it is important that Alumni givers are 
alert to the generous provisions of this "double dollar" pro- 

And Noiv — Four Frank Questions 
About Alumni Fund Giving 

why give AT ALL? — Because none of us completely paid our 
way as students — and few of us pay our way as Alumni. The 
University contributed part of the cost of our education then 
—and contributes THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS, reunions, 
club programs now. But most of us give not because we feel 
we owe a debt, but because we are sincerely interested in 
helping to keep Bucknell strong. 

Because we want to keep Bucknell an independent, self- 
sustaining institution. The alternatives are government sub- 
sidies, controls, and higher taxes — higher than our modest 
fund gifts. 

Because education's biggest benefactors today are foun- 
dations who carefully appraise alumni loyalty. The more 
we do for Bucknell, the more they'll do. They help those 
who help themselves. 

why GIVE regularly? — Because only repeated, dependable 
gifts can qualify as "living endowment." Few people are 
able to make big cash contributions to college endowment 
today. But almost anyone can give a sum equal to the an- 
nual interest on a far larger amount. For example, an an- 
nual gift of $100 is just like adding $2500 to Bucknell's 
endowment. A $50 gift adds $1250. A total annual fund 
of $80,000 is the equivalent of $2,000,000 of additional en- 
dowment. But every dollar must be replaced each year. 

Bucknell is one of the few independent colleges that 
manages a balanced budget year after year. And in most 

years, the Alumni Fund has represented the difference be- 
tween red ink and black. 

why GIVE proportionate GIFTS? — While the act of giving 
is more important than the amount, and while no one else 
can tell you what to give, many Bucknellians genuinely want 
an answer to their question. "How much should I give 

A good idea is to review your giving each year to see 
if your gift is in proportion as you have prospered. One 
popular plan is to give a dollar for each year you are out of 
college, and a number of our Bucknell givers follow this 
plan. Usually a ten-year Alumnus can give $10 as easily 
as a brand-new graduate can give $1. And Alumni at the 
peak of their earning power often exceed the "dollar-a-year" 
scale — to balance older Alumni who have retired and can 
not match it. 

The success of the plan depends, of course, on per cent 
of participation. As more and more Alumni give their pro- 
portionate share, and give it regularly, the dollars will take 
care of themselves. To reach our minimum goal of $80,000 
this year will require an increase of about 1/3 more than 
last year's gift. 

why give now? — Because you'll save yourself several letters 
that would otherwise follow this article — and save Bucknell 
the considerable cost of preparing and mailing them. That 
makes your check now BIGGER than the same check next 
March or May. 

Because you'll reduce your 1963 income tax. Bucks for 
Bucknell are deductible. 

Because you'll clear your desk and conscience — and sleep 
better tonight. 

Because, above all, you'll be helping Bucknell — and an 
other student generation — as you were helped.

The Student View 

by Boimi Vasilawsky '64 

Accent On 
The International 

ITH rapid technological progress, both in Amer- 
ica and Europe, the ideological and social demarcations of 
countries are becoming less distinct. One can drive from 
Italy through France, Belgium, and the Netherlands and 
feel that he is back in the United States driving from Miami 
to Boston, for the people are essentially the same. They may 
differ in climatic adaptation but their ideas, although ex- 
pressed colloquially, are basically similar. The idealized 
nation-state is expanding into an international-state encom- 
passing the entire globe, and ideas are more readily ex- 
changed through improved communications. 

Through its growing foreign student program, Bucknell 
also offers an opportunity for the exchange of ideas on an 
international level. The University provides reciprocal ex- 
change student programs, accepts several foreign students 
into its newly formed graduate school, and has five students 
who have taken part in the Experiment in International 

Bucknell, for a long time, has been interested in foreign 
studies. The new program, with an international flavor, is 
based on this interest. We have had courses in and pro- 
fessors who concentrated on non-Western history and cul- 
ture. Also in the past. Bucknell students were able to spend 
a year of study abroad on their own. 

To encourage more students to study and live abroad 
the University has worked out reciprocal arrangements with 
the University of Bonn and the University of Caen whereby 
students will be accepted and graded under similar condi- 
tions. All grades and credits are transferable. We also 
have a reciprocal scholarship program with the University 
of Bonn. Another project provides for a Bucknellian's at- 
tendance at a French university while a French student 
receives tuition and fees for taking courses and a salary for 
instructing classes at Bucknell. 

At present there are ten Bucknellians studying abroad, 
and twenty-seven foreign students from fourteen countries 
enrolled at Bucknell. An immediate outgrowth of interest 
expressed by the American and foreign students on the 
Bucknell campus is the International Club. In November, 
sixty-three students and other members of the Bucknell 


community gathered to nominate and vote for members of 
an executive board who will draw up a constitution. The club 
has been given temporary recognition by the Student-Faculty 
Congress with hopes of becoming a permanent campus orga- 
nization and of affiliating with the Association of Interna- 
tional Relations Clubs, an organization with branches in 
many American universities. 

Our modern language department has also expanded 
and now includes French. Spanish. German, Italian, and 

The international achievements of Bucknell have not 
been restricted to the undergraduate level. Nine of the 
twenty-seven foreign students are here as graduate students. 
The recently constituted Graduate School tries to avoid con- 
centrating on any one country in selecting graduate students. 
However, the majority of these graduate students are from 
India and are working for degrees in engineering. 

During the past summer five Bucknellians had the good 
fortune to participate in the Experiment in International 
Living. This program is conducted in order to dispel mis- 
conceptions about our country as well as to help our students 
learn to understand people of other nations by living with 
them. The students were abroad for two months, one month 
living with their foreign family, two weeks travelling with 
a member of their family, and two weeks on their own. 

Although Bucknell has surpassed many of its contem- 
poraries in formulating a foreign student program it is not 
now becoming lax or stagnant. The Summer Institute for 
Foreign Students at Bucknell, now in its nineteenth year, is 
a cradle of understanding for the foreign students before 
they begin their studies in other American universities. 
The University is also planning to increase the number of 
foreign students, especially on the undergraduate level. Re- 
ciprocal student exchange programs with three other Euro- 
pean universities are being planned. These are the begin- 
ning phases of a vast new role undertaken by the University. 
They are to be observed, evaluated, and approved. Bucknell 
has opened the door and extended a friendly hand to inter- 
national understanding.

■•"" June Reunion — 1963 

Stewart played football, baseball and tennis 
while attending Bucknell Academy in 1902- 
04. In college he earned the Bachelor of 
Science degree, was a member of Sigma Chi 
fraternity and engaged in class baseball. After 
graduation he worked for Pittsburgh Steel 
Company for two years and then joined the 
Duncannon National Bank as assistant cashier, 
from which he advanced to the position of 
president in later years. In 1904 his father, 
PATRICK F. DUNCAN '81, organized the 
Standard Novelty Works where the Lightning 
Glider sled is made. Later, Stewart and his 
brother, B. Stiles Duncan, became owners of 
this busy plant where over 2,000.000 sleds have 
been produced since the organization of the 
firm. He was married to the former Char- 
lotte Zang, now deceased. He is survived by 
a nephew, STEWART M. DUNCAN, of the 
Bucknell Class of 1943. 

Recently CHARLES and Ethel NICELY 
visited with CARL SPROUT in his Harris- 
burg home. They report the good news that 
Carl's health is much improved and that he 
is making plans for our class reunion next 

Your reporter is about to take off on a trip 
to Florida where she hopes to see a number 
of Bucknell friends. 

Also, I hope that each of our classmates is 
planning to return to the campus for our 55th 
reunion on May 31. June 1, and 2. We had 
a tremendous return for our 50th reunion in 
1958. All who attended (over 50) can verify 
the good times we had. Put yourself in the 
picture this June. 


( Sarah E. Walters) 
3911 First Avenue, N. 
St. Petersburg 13, Fla. 

We regret to inform you of the death, on 
November 5. 1962, of our classmate W. STEW- 
ART DUNCAN of Duncannon. He was 78. 

January Thoughts. Are your New Year's 
resolutions all made? Here's one more to 
add: "I'll do the best I can with what I have 
where I am." Horace Mann once wrote: "I 
have never heard anything about the RESOLU- 
TIONS of the Apostles, but I have heard a 
great deal about the ACTS of the Apostles." 

A newsy letter from GEORGE BAILETS: 
"Dear Sarah — On our way north last June we 
drove through Tallahassee and Montgomery 
where we visited the capitol museums. Of 
special interest in the latter were maps, pic- 
tures, etc., of the French refugees who settled 
there after the overthrow of Napoleon — quite 
a good sized colony. Then we journeyed on 
through the mountains of Tennessee and Ken- 
tucky where we visited at Pippa Pass, a 
school to which Ruth has contributed yearly 
for over 40 years. It has done great work for 
the poor but fine mountain people there. We 
were in Clayton, N. Y., for the celebration of 
the 150th anniversary of the war between 
Canada and the U. S. A. The speaker from 
Kingston, Ont., as well as the mayor of Clay- 
ton, N. Y., expressed the hope and belief 
that never again would Canadians and citizens 
of the U. S. engage in anything but friendly 
competition. — Sincerely, George." 

Happy Golden Wedding Bells! The golden 
wedding anniversary of one of Norristown's 
best known couples had not one. but two cele- 
brations. The Robert Yeagers (IDA MILLS 

SAMES) of 1830 Ardin Dr., wed at a lovely 
autumn ceremony a half century ago in the 
First Baptist Church of Norristown, were hon- 
ored by both their family and their church. 

First of the functions took place on the 
actual anniversary date — September 26 — in the 
Surrey Room at William Penn Inn, Gwynedd, 
with forty guests attending. Hosts were Mr. 
and Mrs. J. Weaver Sames, brother and sis- 
ter-in-law of Mrs. Yeager, with members of 
the original wedding party again present. In- 
cluded "were Mrs. William G. Gross (ANNA 
LYELL) of Great Neck, N. Y., who was maid 
of honor at the 50-year-ago ceremony; Mrs. 
J. Edward Stott and Miss BEATRICE R. 
RICHARDS '08 of Philadelphia, who were 
bridesmaids. Two of the long-ago ushers 
were also there to felicitate them — Dr. William

Many classmates are saddened by the death 
of GUY PAYNE, a member of our class, whose 
way of life will always be held by us in rev-

Friends of EARL HINMAN will be happy 
to know that he is recovering from an injury 
sustained when he fell from the roof of a 
garage he was building. He had a fractured 
pelvis. After a few weeks in the hospital he 
was able to return to his home in Glenside. 
His good wife, Grace, a registered nurse, saw 
to it that Earl had the best of care. By the 
time this is read by his classmates, we sin- 
cerely hope he will be completely recovered. 
He was reminded that he should read the con- 
fessional, "We have done those things we ought 
not to have done."

What a happy and wonderful Homecoming! 
Weather beautiful, parade very outstanding 
and showing a lot of hard work, luncheon 
very tasty and adequate, football victory and 
the largest crowd of Alumni for some years. 

There were three tables reserved: one for 
the 1912 football players — one present. ERLE 



TOPHAM '15; the second for the football 
players of 1937 — there were sixteen present; 
then the Emeritus group, faculty and trustees. 
Pop and I joined this group. At this table 
were: Dr. and Mrs. BOB ROOKE '13; HAR- 
OLD LESHER '05. who played football at 
that time; A. F. DERSHIMER '03; and VIC- 
TOR B. LUCHSINGER - 08. The latter said he 
was 85 that day. He had broken his hip so 
had to use a crutch. It was nice to meet these 
fine gentlemen. 

While Allen Flock was directing the band 
he said "Buck doesn't want me to refer to 
the Alumni as old people." Old, or not old, 
it was mighty nice to have a place reserved 
for you. 

During the "Pep" rally, he called JOHN 
"HEINE" BANK '10 to come up to the plat- 
form to be recognized. He had organized the 
first band at Bucknell in 1908. He took over 
and directed the band with as much ease as 
though he were doing it every day. 

FRED IGLER is moving around again — 
this time real work. He writes, "Affectionate 
greetings to both you and your husband! We 
came to the State University at Morgantown, 
W. Va., September 7 to do a half-time sort 
of holding job until Christmas vacation. Il 
is good to be connected again with the stream 
of purposeful living. This University is built 
on the sides of the mountains. What we used 
to think as hill climbing at Bucknell is noth- 
ing to what students must do here. My office 
is on the third floor of the student center. We 
have an apartment two-thirds of a block down 
the street from the church — also on third floor. 
We are to do half-time but thus far it has 
been time and a half. There were about 200 
students in congregation last Sunday A. M. 
of 700. I had 34 in my undergraduate class 
— 50 were out at evening fellowship. We have 
had fun thus far. I know Kate joins me in 
best wishes. Yours, Frederick B." 

MARGARET HARTER Rathmell passed 
away very suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage 
on October 20, 1961. She and her daughter, 
Jane, were shopping in a nearby town on a 
Friday afternoon. All at once she complained 
of her arm feeling numb and before her 
daughter could get her into the car her leg 
was affected. She got her to her home in 
Swarthmore and called her doctor. By that 
time her speech was gone. She was hurried to 
the hospital. She lapsed into unconsciousness, 
went into a deep coma, then passed away at 
midnight. Her only survivors — a daughter, 
Jane; two grandsons — Philip, 13 and Lee, 10. 
Her husband, Ezra, passed away five years 
ago. There were funeral services at Swarth- 
more and a brief committal service in Lock 
Haven. She was buried in Highland Ceme-

riage of JOHN L. TYSON '42 to Henrietta

CHARLIE SANDERS wrote me that leu 
members of our class were present at Home- 
C. L. SANDERS. A lusty pre-golden anni- 
versary enthusiasm prevailed. The group held 
a class meeting and lunched together. By 
tlii- time you receive this report only four 
months will remain before our big golden day 
arrives. We trust every living member will be 
present. If it unfortunately will be physically 
impossible for you to be with your classmates 
you can show your loyal support of your class 
with a pledge toward our memorial gift. When 
the gift is announced at Commencement time 
it is hoped that every class member can share 
in the joy that will come to everyone who gave 
something to make this gift possible.

two county papers. Now, let others report 
they will return in June. And send me some 
class news. 

Our class president, MARWOOD GLOVER, 
and his reunion committee have been hard at 
work making plans for our reunion on May 31, 
June 1, and 2. Already we have received 
several letters informing us of the plans under

look forward to seeing you.

Frankfurt am Main saying that he will not 
be coming to St. Pete this fall. Says he "I 
drove an Opel to Heidelberg recently to see 
a flower show in the famous castle there." 
He was visiting his son over there.

nally honored with a colored picture of him- 
self, his wife and a new automobile on the 
front page of the St. Petersburg Times Sunday 
supplement devoted to the vigorous church life 
of the city. Earle teaches a Bible Class at 
Pasadena Community Church and his scholars 
treated him to the new car as a token of their 
appreciation for his alert treatment of Bible 
topics. Earle's last pastorate was in Queens,

depended upon for some news. She and FRED 
'14 have been entertaining FRANCES '14 
and MARJORIE '18 McNALL of Washington, 
D. C. Two swell girls as we remember them on 
the campus. I am tempted sorely to tell what 
Fred found back of the barn and loaded in 
the trunk of the McNall buggy as they left 
for the Capitol City. Well, it makes the flow- 
ers grow ever so nicely.

as mighty a pen as ever. WINNIE '15 is still 
the old beach comber. A day lost on the 
sands is like losing another tooth to this 
spritely dame.

the warmest in years. We broke into it by 
visiting the children. Our son Eric (Cornell

Homecoming was a tremendous success. The 
weather was perfect and scenery beautiful. 
With football victories and many Alumni back, 
what more could one ask. 

TIP '15 and I had an especially nice one. 
The 50-year and 25-year football teams were 
honored. At the Bison Club breakfast, 50-

BAER '16, the only other living member on 
the 1912 squad, resides in Orlando, Fla., and 
couldn't make it. We were very sorry not to 
see him. These fellows looked fine and ex- 
pect to be back next year for they all played on 
the 1913 team, too. We were guests at the 
Alumni Luncheon and game, too, and had 
seats on the 50-yard line. Wasn't that nice! 

ETHEL WARD was at Homecoming. She 
looked wonderful. It was so good to see her

^•~ June Reunion 1963 

Have you begun making your plans for next 
June? You do recall that 1963 marks our 
45th reunion year? 

The committee has been working very hard 
to complete plans so that all of you may have 
plenty of time to plan to attend some, or all. 
of the activities. 

And when you get a letter asking you for 
information as to your activities during the 
years since 1918, please do not put the letter 
aside with a promise to attend to it later on. 
Sit right down and fill out the forms, or write 
a letter, and send it off. Naturally, all of us 
are interested in your work, your family, your 
retirement, your trips, your future plans. 

News, as usual, is scarce. In fact the only 
item I have, concerns members of other class- 
es. Mr. and Mrs. ALBERT ELLIOTT '18— 
you all remember "Buck" and Peg (MARGA- 
RET COLLINS '17), who have been living 
in Montoursville for several years — have gone 
to Florida for the winter. They visited a son 
in Kansas during the summer, and will see 
two daughters and families in Florida. They 
will return to Montoursville in the spring.

some news of Dr. F. HAROLD ENTZ. At 
a recent meeting of the North Central Section 
of the American Urological Association in De-

Hi there! Hope all you loyal football fans 
have been able to attend a game or two this 
season and root for good old Bucknell! Do 
you remember the days of freshman week — 
raised umbrellas, name placards, no make-up 
(girls) — and then parading the field at half 
time? Isn't it fun to remember NOW! 

I have had a wonderfully interesting letter 
from our classmate, MARGARET SCHUYLER 
Augustine, whose address is P. O. Box 349, 
Carson City, Nev. I'd like to give you a few 
quotes from her letter. "It does seem that 
with cowboys, Indians, gambling, divorces. 
Lake Tahoe, Reno, Virginia City, etc., I 
should have some unusual experiences — but — 
teaching school is teaching school! We do 
have little cowboys and little Indians in our 
classes, but they are no different from your 
children or mine." Peg worked for the State 
Welfare Department as a district director the 
first two years she was in Nevada, and at that 
time visited Indian reservations, interviewed 
cases and met lots of interesting characters. 
During August, 1962, Peg was given an all- 
expense paid scholarship to a "Newspaper in 
the Classroom" Workshop at U. C. L. A. This 
sounded interesting but little did she realize 
how interesting would be this experience — 
in her words — "I was attending this workshop 
at U. C. L. A. in Los Angeles, Calif., and 
listening to one of the speakers, a Mrs. Sallie 
R. Janssen, a nationally syndicated newspaper 
columnist who writes a regular column for 
over fifty newspapers. This column is called 
Your Teacher' and is not signed by any 
other name. Well, who should the speaker 
turn out to be than SALLIE ROBERTSON 
who is now Mrs. John Janssen. After spend- 
ing part of a day together, we discovered Sal- 
lie had been in touch with PAT REEVES

in Escondido, Calif., and who I have now 
been in touch with renewing our Bucknell

BARCUS, is at 602 Foster Ave., Elmira, N. Y., 
where he is a director of the Service Unit of 
New York State Department of Correction at

in the U. S. Army Reserve and commanding 
officer of the 1200th CA Group (Reinforce- 
ment). He didn't mention his family but he 
has a lovely wife and, if my memory serves 
me, three children who were there in '59 at 
our 25th and I'm sure will be there in '64. 

Also heard from HARRIET KRAMER 
Breen who lives at 620 Sheridan Ave., Plain- 
field, N. J. I'll always remember her smil- 
ing face and cheerful disposition. She is re- 
cuperating from major surgery and I'm sure 
we all wish her well. Her son, Chuck, is at- 
tending Albert Einstein School of Medicine 
following his graduation from Tufts in 1962. 
Gail, her daughter, is a student at the Uni-

Have a really interesting letter from JEAN 
HILL Bush — wish I could print it all. Jean 
lives in Washingtonville with her husband 
who is Chief of Staff and Chief of Orthope-

They are going to Jordan in February where 
Dr. "Joe" will spend a month doing ortho- 
pedics under the Medico program. I'll al- 
ways remember Jean as tall, slim and with 
such beautiful dark hair (just like a faded 
blond to recall this ) . Lenny, her oldest son, 
is a special student at Bucknell and lives in 
Bucknell Village with his wife, Christel, whom 
he married in Germany while he was serving 
with the Army — they have a baby, Jean, who 
is 13 months old and, according to Grand- 
mother, is remarkably smart. Nancy (Mrs.

sity of Pittsburgh Nursing School and now is 
in Riverdale, Md., where her husband is work- 
ing for his master's degree at the University 
of Maryland. David is a pre-med student 
(sophomore) at Dartmouth College, and Bill 
is a junior at Chesire Academy in Connecti-

The November issue of the ALUMNUS ar- 
rived today. I enjoyed the pictures in the 
"Bucknell Runs in the Family" article. Wasn't 
it fun trying to find a resemblance between 
sons and daughters of '36ers and their Moms 
and Dads? 

On a recent trip to Rochester, N. Y., we ran 
into MARY (SAVIDGE '42) and TOM 
RICHARDS '37, who have a son at Bucknell.

We had a chat with ELIZABETH (DYER

Homecoming last fall was really great — a 
beautiful day, a good game and, as an extra 
bonus, we discovered we were sitting behind 
And kudos to the band ! I can't remember 
ever hearing the Alma Mater played so beau- 

Ours was a flying trip. We did not decide 
to go until Friday night, but we were up and 
on our way before daybreak. (Getting our 
small caravan on the road so early was no 
small accomplishment in itself.) We arrived 

in Lewisburg just as the parade was coming 
along. Since we left right after the game, I 
did not get much chance to collect news. I 
did catch a glimpse of BETS MacNAMARA 
FALCONE at the game and ELWOOD KER- 
STETTER at the luncheon. Of course Prexy 
WATSON was on hand. Couldn't miss him at 
the game. He was wearing a blue . . . er . . . 
ah . . . chapeaux? . . . lid? . . . Just what 
was that you had on your head, Herb? It was 
an altogether pleasant time, despite our frus- 
trating attempts to find names for the fami- 
liar faces we saw. 

ALBERT F. ROHLFS has won a well-de- 
served recognition with his promotion to the 
grade of Fellow in AIEE "for contribution to 
improved high voltage testing and measuring 
techniques." Al joined General Electric upon 
his graduation with a B.S. in electrical engi- 
neering in 1937. He made significant contri- 
butions to the planning and design of the new 
High Voltage Laboratory built by the General 
Electric Company in Pittsfield, Mass., and in 
1953 was made manager of High Voltage De- 

Would it be too awful to say this is elec- 
trifying news? How about charged with ex- 
citement? (Oh, my!) Seriously, such major 
accomplishments should not be treated so flip- 
pantly. We hasten to add our sincere con- 
gratulations to the many you must have re- 
ceived, Al.

Long time since we've heard from EARLE 
F. THOMAS, but an alert Bucknellian in 
Corning, N. Y., spotted him and we are glad 
to report that he is a sales engineer for labora- 
tory equipment for the firm of Macalaster 
Bicknell of Connecticut and lives at 144 Hav- 
erford St., Hamden 17, Conn., with his wife, 
the former Elizabeth Keegan, and their two 

to ask for a bit of news regarding her interest- 
ing new home at 183 Gilkeson Rd., Pitts- 
burgh 28, where she and husband STAN '43 
live with their three daughters. She was too 
modest to comply, so I shall tell you that 
it was designed by a pupil of Frank Lloyd 
Wright and embodies his theory of using the 
land as inspiration and material. Although it 
is set on a sloping, heavily wooded lot, it 
captures a great deal of light, bright, living 
and several level and pleasant recreation areas. 

Stan travels a great deal as vice president 
of the Lando Advertising Agency in Pitts- 
burgh, and serves as a roving, but unpaid, re- 
porter for me. I'm grateful. He recently 
met DAVE SECUNDA who is at present vice 
president in charge of programs for the Amer- 
ican Management Association, 1515 Broadway, 
New York City. As a housewife, that sounds 
like so much Greek to me and I wish Dave 
would report on just what it is that they 

The Marshalls also sent news that their 
friend, PAUL BOSTED '53 is now senior 
management consultant for the International 
Rectifier Corporation and in effect is in charge 
of all of their international operations. He 
and his wife, ELIZABETH RICHTER '52 now 
live at Hoseycroft, Hoseyhill, Westerham, 
Kent, England, with their four children. I'm 
sure that a person as friendly as Paul is doing 
good work for his country as well as his com- 
pany. But. I would surely like to know 
just what they rectify. 

Be sure and tune in to the next issue and 
perhaps we will find out the answers to these 
two mysteries. In the meantime I would en- 
joy news of each and everyone, and we hope 
that the next issue arrives at the start of a 
happy, prosperous, and above all, peaceful 
year for all of you.

M.D. '94 

It is with profound regret that we 
record the death of Harvey F. Smith, 
M.D. at his home in Linglestown, near 
Harrisburg on Monday. November 12, 
at the age of 91. 

Dr. Smith graduated from Bucknell 
in 1894 and from the Medical School 
of the University of Pennsylvania in 
1897. Bucknell conferred the honorary 
decree of Doctor of Science upon him 
in 1924. 

Active in his profession until 1960. 
a fellow of the American College of Sur- 
geons, founder of the Harrisburg Tumor 
Clinic, he was known as "the grand old 
man of Harrisburg medicine." "Dr. 
Harvey" was a giant in his profession. 
He became an extraordinary sought-af- 
ter and widely-known surgeon and spe- 
cialist on cancer. He did not retire from 
surgery until his 89th year. 

At Bucknell. and throughout his life, 
he was interested in sports. He played 
third base for the Washington Senators 
in 1896. In June 1899, at an alumni- 
varsity baseball game which was then 
a part of the Bucknell commencement 
festivities. Dr. Smith "discovered" Chris- 
ty Mathewson '02 and was instrumental 
in making the contact which led to that 
famous pitcher's career with the New 
York Giants. He also helped to shape 
the career of another great pitcher, Chief 
Bender of the Philadelphia Athletics. In 
1961 he was honored as the man "who 
has contributed most to Harrisburg 
sports in the first half of the twentieth 

He is survived by his wife, the former 
Blanche McNeal ( Goucher College ) , and 
two children, Robert M. Smith of New 
York City and Mrs. Eleanor Toby of 
Greenwich, Conn.; a brother. Judge Paul 
G. Smith '05, former president judge 
of Dauphin County Court, and two sis- 

Funeral services were held in Grace 
Methodist Church with burial in the 
family plot in Harrisburg Cemetery. 

An active participant in professional 
athletics until his medical duties inter- 
ferred. he maintained a life-long interest 
in many sports other than baseball and 
combined his practice of medicine with a 


keen interest in physical fitness as a 
necessary first step in the prevention 
of illness. His life was one of excite- 
ment, vigor, and accomplishment. Any- 
one who ever met him. from governors 
and famous doctors to patients, friends 
and sports acquaintances, knew they had 
met a remarkable man. 

To his family go our deepest sym- 
pathy. Their loss is permanent and ir- 
reparable. But so is ours. "Dr. Har- 
vey" cherished Bucknell. and he strove 
for its ideals. His exemplary life will 
stand as a guidepost to his thousands of 
Bucknell friends and acquaintances. 

WOLFE '96 

A strong link with the University's 
founding and cherished traditions was 
lost in the passing of Dr. Mary M. 
Wolfe, one of BucknelFs most distin- 
guished Alumnae and a trustee of the 
Universitv. on Thursday. October 18, 

Dr. Mary M. Wolfe was born on 
March 31, 1874, into an illustrious Buck- 
nell family which included five ances- 
tors on Bucknell's original Board of 
Trustees. One of these was James 
Moore. II, who. more than any other 
individual, must be given credit for the 
founding of the University at Lewisburg. 

A graduate of the Bucknell Female 
Institute in 1891, and of the college Class 
of 1896, summa cum laude ( M.A. 1900) . 
Dr. Mary was in every sense a pioneer; 
a pioneer for women's rights and wo- 
men's suffrage: a pioneer in professional 
education for women ( she received her 
M.D. from the University of Michigan 
in 1899): a pioneer in mental health 
and treatment of the feeble-minded. She 
served as chief physician, Women's De- 
partment, of the Norristown State Hos- 
pital from 1899 to 1910. She operated 
her own private sanitarium at Stony- 
hurst from 1910 to 1914. She was in- 
strumental in the founding of the Lau- 
relton State Village, an institution for 
feeble-minded women, and was appoint- 
ed its first superintendent in 1914. She 
served as superintendent at Laurelton 
until her retirement in 1940 and was 
largely responsible for the growth and 
program of this model institution. 

Lnquestionablv a national pioneer in 
the field of institutional psychiatry and 
the recipient of the highest honors that 
could be conferred by her profession, 
Dr. Wolfe in her 26 years as superin- 
tendent of Laurelton State Village was 
successful in building a conviction into 
an institution with a program to meet 
a long-neglected problem. From its 

opening in 191 1 until her retirement ill 
1940, the former "state village," createcB 
by legislation sponsored by Hon. Beni 
jamin K. Focht. then serving in the! 
State Senate was developed into one oil 
the most effective arms of the Pennsyll 
vania Department of Welfare and be- 
came a model for other states. 

As a Bucknell trustee for 25 years. 
Dr. Wolfe, a great-granddaughter o' 
James Moore, II. founder of the Uni 
versity, was a mighty factor in its ad- 
vancement. In this service to her alms 
mater, as in everything to which she 
turned her hand, she exemplified thel 
abiding concern, devotion to principle 
and personal integrity that are the ele 
ments of a noble career. 

Dr. Mary's love for alma mater not! 
only continued a family tradition, bull 
became a passionate personal cause. Nol 
one could be more concerned for main-l 
taining Bucknell s traditions, prestige.^ 
and progress toward excellence. Buck-h 
nell honored her with a Doctor of Sci-I' 
ence degree, in 1933 and by election as! 
an alumni member of Phi Beta Kappa 
in 1948. When she was confined to heij 
Lewisburg home by ill health, and could 
no longer serve as an active member., 
the Board of Trustees elected her to! 
honorary membership. 

Dr. Wolfe was government delegate to 
the International Congress of Nervous! 
and Mental Diseases at Amsterdam. Hol-i 
land, in 1907. 

She was a member of the American > 
Medical Association, the Pennsylvania! 
State Medical Association, the American! 
Psychiatric Association, the American! 
Association for Mental Deficiency, which! 
she served as national president in 1934;} 
the Pennsylvania Psychiatric Society; 
the American Association of University 
Women: Shikelimo Chapter, Daughters 
of the American Revolution; the Lewis- 
burg Civic Club: the Women's Christian! 
Temperance Union; Pi Beta Phi Soror-j 
ity: and the First Baptist Church of] 

Surviving are a nephew, Charles: 
Wolfe Kalp '29. a Lewisburg attorney;! 
a niece, Mrs. Ben Stillwagon (M. Jo-, 
sephine Wolfe I'M), Reading; and two 
grandnieces, Ann Copeland Kalp and 
Jane Stevenson Kalp. both of Lewis-,

Charles Francis Potter '07. whose 
death occurred in New York City on 
October 4, was one of BucknelFs greats. 
[The column-long obituary in the New 
Work Times bears witness to his distin- 
guished career. 

Of the dozen books he published over 
[the years, The Great Religious Leaders, 
available in 1962 as a paperback, after 
earlier publication as a hardback, is 
probably the one most likely to survive. 
Dealing as it does with world figures of 
many religious traditions, it represents 
Potter's interpretation of the Bultmann 
theory of "entmythologisierung." A re- 
vision of Potter's earlier book. The 
[Story of Religion, it embodies the year- 
Jong research of a mature scholar into 
the human search for religious verities. 

Potter's own continuing passage 
through the "varieties of religious ex- 
perience" is eloquently told in his auto- 
biography, The Preacher and I, ( Crown 
Publishers, 19511. He alienated some 
of his early friends by his movement 
from one religious group to another, 
but those of us who knew him well could 
understand and approve the intellectual 
honesty which dedicated these changes. 

He began as a dedicated member of a 
Baptist Church in Marlboro, Mass. As 
a student at Harvard in 1907. I was 
privileged to spend a Thanksgiving re- 
cess in his early home and came to 
know and admire his family. At Buck- 
nell he was a top-ranking student head- 
ed for the Baptist ministry. Following 
college, he enrolled at Newton Theologi- 
cal Institution, where he found the 
fresh intellectual air delightful. He 
served as pastor of several Baptist 
churches, then moved over to Unitar- 
ianism. After pastorates in Alberta, 
Canada, his home city of Marlboro. 
Mass., and Wellesley Hills. Mass., he was 
invited in 1919 to New York City. Here 
for some years he served as pastor of 
the West Side Unitarian Church on 
110th Street. 

It was during this period that he par- 
ticipated in a series of debates with the 
Rev. John Roach Straton. pastor of a 
Fundamentalist church in Manhattan. 
These debates aroused an interest far 
beyond the limits of the metropolitan 
area. Since I was at the time a grad- 
uate student at New York University, I 
was able to attend two of the debates. 
Emotions ran high in Carnegie Hall, but 
Potter emerged with honor, revealing 
his scholarly knoweldge of religious his- 
tory and meeting his embittered antago- 
nist with perfect courtesy. In his auto- 
biography he devotes more than a hun- 

dred pages to a full account of these de- 
bates, which marked an epoch in the 
theological history of this country. 

His next emergence into the public 
eye was when, as correspondent for sev- 
eral magazines, he reported the notorious 
Scopes trial in Dayton, Tenn. The vivid 
account in his autobiography of this 
incredible event is at once amusing and 

Now began a series of what he called 
"interludes," in which he moved away 
from his chosen field. He resigned his 
pastorate of the Westside Church to be- 
come an "applepicker, ' as it was called 
in student slang, in ordinary English, 
fund-raiser for Antioch College. Anyone 
who has participated in such drives will 
appreciate his humorous account of this 
adventure. When his first year's labor 
did not yield huge results, he was, as he 
frankly admits, "fired" by President 
Morgan, a businessman who had not 
yet learned much about colleges. 

Another interlude was as representa- 
tive for the American Publishers Asso- 
ciation, traveling over much of the coun- 
try lecturing on "books." Here he 
shared an experience familiar to many 
book-lovers, that while high school stu- 
dents could be interested in reading, 
members of men's luncheon clubs were 
apt to be bibliopholes. 

But now he returned to his proper field 
of religion. After two years as pastor 
of the Universalist Church of the Divine 
Paternity, he founded and conducted for 
years The First Humanist Society of 

New York City, in which he enlisted 
many of the leading intellectuals of the 
metropolitan area. He continued to pub- 
lish books; among others The Lost 
Years oj Jesus Revealed presents the 
thesis that there is evidence in the re- 
cently discovered Dead Sea Scrolls that 
Jesus spent his learning years in one of 
the monasteries of the sect which pro- 
duced the scrolls. 

But his active mind could not support 
his failing body. Crippled in two motor 
accidents he died of cancer October 4.

Last spring, at the request of one of our Alumni stationed with the Air Force 
on Okinawa, it was suggested that we make inquiry of all of the Alumni with San 
Francisco APO and FPO numbers as to their exact whereabouts with the view 
of giving Bucknellians — both military and civilians — a chance to become acquainted 
with their various Far Eastern locations. 

Always interested in promoting gatherings of Bucknellians all over the world, 
we sent letters of inquiry to the 20 recent graduates carrying APO and FPO 
numbers out of San Francisco, Calif. We realize, of course, that there were many- 
more than 20 Bucknellians in the Far East, but so many men in service fail to 
give us their military addresses, preferring that we continue to send mail to their 
home addresses in the states. 

Well, we soon learned that these specific locations, while not really classified 
information, are not readily supplied by the government. However, one of the 
six who answered — Mrs. W. H. Beardsley (Joan McNutt '52) — made a suggestion 
that might be helpful if you want to locate Bucknellians in your overseas area. 
She suggests either writing letters-to-the-editor of English language daily news- 
papers published in the area or run classified ads in the Pacific edition of the Stars 
and Stripes (are you listening Larry Ashman '52 over there in APO 94? ). 

While this procedure will not help us here in Lewisburg to accomplish our 
objective — to unite the Bucknell civilians with the Bucknell military all around 
the world — it may provide a way for the military members to get together. And. 
of course, we would very much like to hear from groups that do meet together, 
whether it is in the far reaches of the Pacific, in Europe, or other places where 
Bucknellians are located around the world.

Always one of the busiest places at the beginning of any semester 
is the University Bookstore. On January 29. the day for second 
semester registration, the "rush" was on for supplies and those 
prescribed textbooks. The cover pictures students as they wait their 
turn at the check-out counter.

THE BUCKELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May, 
September, and November by BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY. Entered 
as second-class matter December 30, 1930 at the post office at Lewis- 
burg, Pa., under Act of August 24, 1912.

The bridge between a university graduate and the 
complex world of work is the university placement 
office. At Bucknell the Placement Bureau, through 
its counseling and guidance program assists 
seniors in job analysis and selection and provides 
them with the background information necessary to 
make their individual decisions. Serving as the 
communication arm between the campus and 
business and industry, the Bureau aids seniors to 
find promising careers and to satisfy their 
vocational desires. 

Last year the Bureau processed more than 2300 on 
and off campus interviews for graduating seniors 
and arranged for 209 company visits to the campus. 
A survey of the Class of 1962, based on an 83.5% 
response, revealed that 46% of the class accepted 
employment with business and industry. According 
to Raymond K. Irwin '44, Director of Placement, 
20.7% enrolled in full-time graduate programs, 
7.8% entered the military service and 9.0% made 
other plans. 

Since its establishment in 1948, the Placement 
Bureau has extended its services by assisting all 
students in their search for summer and part-time 
employment. The services of the Placement 
Bureau are not limited to students currently 
enrolled but also are available to all Alumni. Last 
year 43 Alumni were assisted with employment 

Presently the "recruiting" season is underway. 
Company representatives are flocking to campuses 
everywhere in search of qualified candidates to 
fill the swelling demands for educated talent. At 
Bucknell we believe they will find what they are 
seeking. Bucknell has long enjoyed an excellent 
reputation in the business world which reflects with 
credit the accomplishments of her Alumni and the 
excellence of her faculty and curriculum. 

The Placement Library catalogs literature from over 500 
companies. Senior Robert Diehl from Trexlertown takes 
advantage of these facilities to learn more about job oppor- 
tunities available to him.

to be correct. ALL Alumni are entitled to vote. The ballot will be a combination 
mailer providing for the return of the ballot, and it will allow those Alumni who 
have not contributed to the Alumni Annual-Giving Fund since July 1, 1962, to 
send a contribution. 

Upon receiving the ballot you will be asked to vote for ONE candidate; en- 
close your fund contribution if you have not already done so; and return it in the 
postage free envelope to the Alumni Office by May 16, 1963. Please remember 

On receipt of your ballot at the Alumni Office, your fund contribution will 
be removed from the envelope and the ballot will be locked in a ballot box. If

special national campaign for an American medical cente| 
commemorating Dr. Gordon Seagrave's fortieth anniversary 
in his hospital at Namkham. The Honorable David McKen

Other Bucknell associations with the medical services in 
Burma have been a long career of teaching biology on the 
part of Miss Marion Shivers '14 at Judson College in Ran 
goon and Dr. Tasker's Fulbright appointment to the Univer- 
sity College of Mandalay in 1949-50. For these and other 
reasons the University has felt that this year it is appropriate 
to recognize the medical center program and to invite Dr. 
Ravdin as the speaker. 


Captain Charles M. Keyes, U.S.N., retired, has been ap- 1 
pointed to the engineering faculty as an instructor in en- 
gineering graphics.

j/'ime of the June 9 show. Should the Bucknell team success- 

ully defeat the champions it will take over the championship 

: ind return to New York the following week to face the con- 

enders of another college. 

Since the College Bowl season ends June 16, there will 

Ije no further contests until the fall. However, if the Buck- 

lell team is successful in its first two programs, it will be 

nvited back in the fall to defend its title and continue its 

Did to retire as undefeated champions after five contests. 

Dr. Douglas K. Candland, assistant professor of psychol- 
3gy, will coach the Bucknell team. 

The College Bowl is a contest of questions and answers 
with the team having the greater number of points at the 
end of the program declared the winner. The questions 
cover a broad range of liberal arts subjects from anatomy 
[to zoology. 

Each time a team wins a contest the University receives 
a $1500 scholarship from the General Electric Company. 
If a team is successful in all five attempts, an additional 
$1500 scholarship is added to the previous winnings and the 
team receives a silver bowl.

A grant of $50,000 toward the construction of a new 
observatory, under the direction of Dr. Emil J. Polak '51, 
■ professor of mathematics and astronomy, has been an- 
nounced by the National Science Foundation. The grant 
has been awarded to Bucknell under the foundation's grad- 
uate-level research facilities program. 

The proposed observatory will cost approximately $200,- 
000. Efforts are now under way to secure additional funds, 
in the form of gifts and grants, so that construction may 
start in the near future. 

Plans for the new observatory have been drawn, and a 
site southeast of memorial stadium has been selected for 
the new building. Unlike the old observatory which was 
located next to the Carnegie building, the location for the 
proposed observatory is considered ideal for unobstructed 
celestial observation. 

The former observatory was torn down last summer fol- 
lowing the sudden collapse of a section of tower wall while 
the building was undergoing renovation. 

Funds from the NSF grant will be used to provide such 
graduate research facilities as staff offices, a seminar room, 
shop, dark room, and a telescope tower. 

Other facilities planned for the new observatory include 
an undergraduate laboratory capable of holding up to 50 
students, quarters for night astronomers engaged in special 
projects, and a meridian transit room for synchronizing the 
telescope with the time and position of the stars. In addition, 
the new structure will be air conditioned throughout. 

Later, when funds permit, a planetarium will be added 
to the observatory, thus providing complete instructional fa- 
cilities for the undergraduate level. 


For the second consecutive summer Dr. F. David Martin, 
professor of philosophy, will serve as tour leader of the 
six-week residence program in Florence, Italy, to study the 
development of Florentine Renaissance Art. 

The total cost of the tour is $1,040, which covers tuition, 
room, and board (three meals a day) for six weeks, jet 
plane fare (round-trip), plus excursions to San Gimignano 
— the "city of towers," Pistoia, Prato, Volterra, the seaside 
resort of Viareggio, Pisa with its famed Leaning Tower, 
Siena, and a four or five day trip to Rome, cradle of Wes- 
tern and Christian civilizations, as well as transportation 
from Rome to Florence. 

The jet flight from New York to Rome will leave July 6: 
the summer session ends August 17; and the plane returns 
from Paris to New York on September 1. This leaves time 
for independent travel. 

Places are also available on the jet flight to all those 
who may be going to Europe this summer but who are not 
participating in the Art-Study Tour. The only requirement 
is a connection with Bucknell University. The round-trip 
fare will be offered at $350 (one-half the price of regular 
commercial flights). 


A set of "The Journal of The American Chemical So- 
ciety," dating from 1911 to 1960 was presented to Bucknell 
University in honor of Joanne Cottle Storch and John L. 
Storch, Class of 1953, by Dr. Delmar L. Cottle. This valu- 
able gift has already been placed in the library of the chem- 
istry department and has facilitated the program for under- 

march 1963 

graduate and graduate chemical research. Bucknell Univer- 
sity's academic program has been considerably strengthened 
by this very generous gift. 

We also wish to acknowledge with thanks the aid of Dr. 
Merrill Lynn '58 in transporting the journals to the campus. 


What educational progress has been made by the aca- 
demic reorganization into three colleges? Has the attrition 
rate increased or decreased? Is there a chapel program? 
The answers to these questions and many more asked by 
Alumni are answered in the recently published Report of the 
President for the Academic Year 1961-62. The 38-page 
brochure is a comprehensive report of the current Univer- 
sity operations and aspirations. 

A limited number of copies of the report are available on 
a first come-first served basis. While the supply lasts Alumni 
may secure a copy by writing to: Miss Trennie E. Eisley, 
Director of Public Relations, Bucknell University, Lewis- 
burg, Pa. 


The December, 1962, edition of the Bucknell Review, a 
scholarly journal of letters, arts, and science, includes eight 
articles covering the fields of history, sociology and poetry. 

Contributors to the Review include George 0. Kent, 
historian for the United States Department of State, and Dr. 
Arthur J. Slavin, assistant professor of history at Bucknell. 
Faculty members from Atlantic Christian College, the Uni- 
versity of Detroit, Princeton, Purdue, Lafayette, and San 
Francisco State College have articles published in this issue. 

Requests for yearly subscriptions ($2.40) or single issues 
($.60 J should be sent to Dr. Harry R. Garvin, Editor, Buck- 
nell Review, Bucknell University. 



The Library of Bucknell University 
Bucknell University Press, Lewisburg, 1962. 

Many of us who studied in the old Carnegie Library 
Building on campus never questioned its cramped quarters 
because we didn't know any better. Those of us who have 
visited Lewisburg in recent years know better now. We are 
astonished by the splendor of the Ellen Clarke Bertrand 
Library, regretful that we did not have these fine facilities, 
and proud that Bucknell at last has a library worthy of its 
tradition and symbolic of its aspirations. 

How the library of Bucknell came into being, how it 
grew, and how it achieved its present status and stature is the 
subject of a work of erudition and charm by one of Buck- 
nell's most distinguished historians. Demonstrating the vir- 
tues of scholarship, Professor Oliphant informs without 
being pedantic, instructs without being didactic, and enter- 
tains without recourse to phony sensationalism. 

In order to show us the history of the library, Dr. Oli- 
phant has given us some knowledge of Bucknell itself. He 
has told us not a little of Bucknell's administrations, chang- 
ing curricula, and sense of mission. He has thus been able to 
project the story of the library against the background of its 
relation to the larger institution. As a consequence, we see 
the role played by the library in the life of the college. But 
an unexpected bonus is Professor Oliphant's glimpse into the 
development of other schools of higher learning and their 
libraries. What happens, as a result is that he has trans- 


cended his modest aim and has provided us with somethi: , : 
that comes close, in microcosm, to being a brief history | 
American higher education. 

From a collection of 438 volumes in 1849, the Bucknc 
library gathered 187,216 volumes by 1961. In 1850, tl 
college authorized $300 for the purchase of books (f> 
several years in that decade no funds at all) : one hundn 
years later, the college appropriated $40,000 to acquit 
books and periodicals in 1961 alone. Scattered gifts i| 
books in the early years have been replaced in recent yea i 
by substantial assistance, both financial and archival. Ha] 
hazard administration and cataloguing have given way IB 
modernization and efficiency. 

The whole library concept has changed. Originally 
library was a place to keep books. In the early 1880's, fo 
example, the library of Bucknell was open to students for 
single hour each week. Not until 1884 did the library open H 
reading room for the students to use without cost. No doul 
these conditions played their part in stimulating studer' 
literary societies to maintain their own collections of book 
quite apart from the college library. How different in 1961 
when the library had 86,693 books in circulation, was cata 
loguing and binding books and periodicals systematically 
was conducting inter-library loans and exchanges as matter; 
of course, was open long hours daily and all the year round 
By then, the library had become not only the repository anci 
the major source of recorded knowledge on the campus bu 
also the heart of intellectual activity, the serious quest fo 
wisdom and truth that characterizes a fine university. 

The impressive achievement, we hope, is not at an end 
Self-satisfacticn is the delusion of those about to decline. Fo 
as Professor Oliphant says in his conclusion: "The librar 
of the University, if its increasing needs are hereafter met b) 
generous friends, may hope very soon not only to pass wel 
beyond . . . adequacy, but ... to reach, within a ver) 
few years, the cherished goal of high distinction." 

His book deserves a wide audience of readers.

Linguistics and Reading 

Holt, Reinhart and Winston, 1962 

This book is directed especially to educators having!; 
responsibility for the development of the first "r" in the! 
basic triad of "readin', writin', and 'rithmetic." It may bell 
recommended as required reading for PTA members, par-| 
ents with children in the schools, or other citizens who wish | 
sound guidance in a controversial educational issue. 

The author's name alone would recommend the book to 
anyone who has kept in touch with recent scientific studies 
in the teaching of English. The first chapter gives a brief 
but well illustrated history of the theory and practise of read- 
ing instruction since the appearance in 1570 of John Hart's 
pioneer treatise. 

Chapter II traces the history of linguistics from the early 
] 9th Century to 1960. The bulk of the volume consists of 
chapters devoted to a clear presentation of phonics, phonec- 
tics (which some commentators still confuse with phonics!), 
semantics, and spelling. These somewhat frightening terms

! TEADING into the final month of the winter season, 


Bucknell's swimming and wrestling teams were riding 
' on winning records and the basketball team was trying to 
shake a six-game losing streak after capturing the champion- 
ship in the Downeast Classic at Bangor, Maine in late De- 

Under new coach Gene Evans, the court squad turned 
aside Maine and Brown to win the Downeast title on De- 
cember 28 and 29. Junior Sam Penrose and sophomore 
Karl Heiner were named to the all-tournament team and the 
Bisons received equally outstanding performances from soph- 
omores John Matthews and Lorry Hathaway. A brilliant 
rebounder throughout the tourney, Hathaway was the choice 
of many observers for the most valuable player award, but 
a three-man selection committee relegated him to a second 
team position. 

Hathaway led all scorers with 20 points and added 19 re- 
bounds in a 66-64 opening round victory over Maine, and 
then came back with 13 points and 14 rebounds as the Bi- 
sons routed Brown, 82-69. Matthews picked up 27 points in 
the final game for the top scoring mark of the tournament. 

After finally digging out of the blizzard that kept the 
team in Bangor for an additional 36 hours, the players re- 
turned home on New Year's Day, but apparently forgot to 
make the right kind of resolutions. The courtmen lost their 
first six games in 1963 and went into a February 6th game 
with Delaware with a 4-10 record. Six of the setbacks have 
been by less than 10 points. 

The Bisons dropped an 88-83 decision to Penn State in 
overtime despite a brilliant 34-point and 21-rebound effort 
by Hathaway, and also lost close ones to Albright and West- 
minster. Penrose hit a career high with 34 points in a 79-67 
loss to Lafayette and has improved his scoring average to 
15.3 points per game. The 6-4 junior has also pulled down 
an average of 9.6 rebounds per game and is second to Hath- 
away in both departments. 

A 6-4 soph from Mt. Lebanon, Lorry averaged 17.6 
points and 14.3 rebounds per game in the first 14 contests. 
The other members of the starting lineup are Matthews, a 
6-0 sophomore from Bethlehem, Don Hester, a 6-2 junior 
from Punxsutawney, and Captain Tom Johnson, a 5-9 senior 
from Pittsburgh. 

This year's team is one of the least experienced at Buck- 
nell in recent years, but the boys have turned in some out- 
standing performances and we look for Evans' cagers to pull 
a few surprises before the season is over. 


The swimmers had a 3-2 record going into a meet with 
N.Y.U. on February 9th, and the varsity and freshman teams 

march 1963 

have already combined to break a number of school and 
pool records. Coach Bob Latour's tankmen posted convinc- 
ing victories over Lafayette, Gettysburg and West Virginia 
and lost to Pitt, one of the top teams in the East, and Rut- 
gers. In the latter contest the Scarlet Knights won the final 
freestyle relay to capture a 53-42 decision. 

Leading the Bison swimmers this year are co-captains 
Bob Ayers and Robin Harris, the top distance freestylers, 
and sophomore butterfly ace Jim Smigie who was undefeat- 
ed in his first seven races and has lowered his own school 
record for the 200-yard butterfly to 2:05.3. Smigie set 
pool records while winning at Lafayette, West Virginia 
and Rutgers. 

Smigie also set a school mark of 5:42.7 in the 500-yard 
freestyle against Rutgers and sophomore Enos Fry bettered 
his own record in the 50-yard freestyle with a :22.7 clocking 
against the Knights. The other school record set in the first 
half of the season was by freshman Dick Sells with a 1:59.3 
clocking in the 200-yard freestyle. 


Coach Fred Prender's wrestlers dropped a suspense- 
packed 16-14 decision to Temple in the season opener to end 
a ten-match winning streak, but then went undefeated in 
their next six starts. 

Following the setback at the hands of the Owls, the mat- 
men posted victories over Muhlenberg, Fairleigh Dickinson, 
Baltimore, and Gettysburg and battled to ties with Franklin 
and Marshall and Kings Point. 

Three wrestlers combined to lose a total of only two 
matches in the first seven outings. Junior 147 pounder John 
Coyle ran his undefeated dual match string to 16 with seven 
straight victories, and Captain Jim Koehn (123) and sopho- 
more John Cunningham (177) posted 6-1 individual records. 

The other starters on the mat squad and their records 
in the first seven matches are sophomores Dale Fawcett (2-4) , 
Joe Fleming (3-3-1 ) and Wally Schwartz (0-3) , junior Glenn 
Dussinger (4-2-1) and senior Bart DiChiara (4-2-1). 

Headlining the final weeks of the season are home match- 
es with Delaware and Penn, a road contest with Lafayette, 
and the Middle Atlantic Conference Championships at Hof- 
stra College. The Bisons finished third in the MAC tourna- 
ment last year, but will meet plenty of stiff opposition from 
the 1962 winner Lycoming, Hofstra, West Chester and Tem- 

The swimmers had three home meets remaining with 
N.Y.U., Penn and Delaware, and were scheduled to travel to 
LaSalle and Lehigh. The MAC Championships will be held 
at Bucknell on March 1 and 2 with West Chester defending 
the title it has won for the past two years. 





Each year the Alumni Office prepares both a class and 
geographic census of Alumni, and every two or three years 
we publish information showing the geographic distribution. 

The accompanying map and chart shows the state-by- 
state distribution of Alumni with known addresses. The 
chart lists the comparable census taken in November, 1960. 

The Clubs Cover the Country — Almost 

Of the 19.887 Alumni on the mailing list, 94% live in 
areas that are served by a local alumni club, and even in 
such faraway spots as Arizona, North Carolina. South Caro- 
lina. Texas, and Louisiana where alumni concentration is 
light, informal gatherings of local alumni groups are held 
almost yearly. 

Men /Women 

The proportion of men to women (65% men, 35% wo- 
men) in the present undergraduate student body is the same 
proportion that we find among the alumni body, thus main- 
taining the pleasant social combination so well-liked in our 
own student days. 

Whom Do They Marry? 

Well, they marry Bucknellians in a surprisingly large 







number of cases — 25% of the married women listed in ou 
annual census have Bucknell husbands. 

The Ages of the Alumni Body 

The '"middle" of the alumni population falls within th< 
Class of 1948 — almost 10,000 (or 50%) of our Alumn 
have been graduated since 1948 and are consequently abou 
35 years old or younger. About 25% of our Alumni have 
graduated since 1955. Three-fourths of our Alumni are ir 
the Class of 1934 or later years. Our veteran Alumni, mem| * 
bers of the Emeritus Club, who have graduated in 1912 onj" 
earlier now number 657. Our oldest Alumna attended " 
Bucknell in 1884. 

Once a Bucknellian — Always a Bucknellian 

By definition in the Constitution in The General Alumni 
Association, any one who ever matriculated at Bucknell is 
deemed a member of the Association. Thus, non-graduates 
of the University are included in the membership and the 
mailing list. Of the 19,887 Alumni. 27%- are non-graduates, 
65% hold bachelor's degrees and 8% hold master's degrees 
from Bucknell University. While accurate statistics are not 
now available, it is fair to assume that about 30% of our 
Alumni hold bachelor degrees from a college or university 
other than Bucknell.

"A smashing success!" are the words from President 
ouis F. Alessio '48 concerning the "Pre-Holiday Get-To- 
sther" of the Bucknell Alumni Club of Northern New Jer- 
;y held on December 2, 1962. 

The affair deviated from the normal type evening dinner 

I leeting. It was held on a Sunday afternoon with light 
nacks and refreshments. The presence of head football 
oach, Bob Odell. backfield coach, Fred Prender, and presi- 

fe.ent of the Bison Club, Jay P. Mathias '35, also added to the 

i uccessful club function. 

President Alessio said, "About half of the members 
iresent were those whom we haven't seen for some time. I 
lelieve this can be attributed to the athletic nature of the 
>rogram and the change in format. We received many fine 
omments from a majority of those attending." 


On December 3, 1962, twenty-five Alumni and friends 
attended the Fall Round-Up meeting of the Bucknell Alumni 
Club of St. Petersburg at the Wedgewood Inn in St. Peters- 
burg, Fla. 

Dr. Leo Rockwell '07, and his charming wife, Vera Cober 
Rockwell '11, spoke to us and told us of the exciting visit 
they made to the campus during Commencement Week End 
this past June. They reported to us on the business of The 
General Alumni Association and the fine time they had visit- 
ing with members of the Emeritus Club. 

Dr. Coleman J. Harris '12, president of the club, reported 
on the 50th anniversary of his Class of 1912. 

Also, Mrs. Ruth Stephens Porter '05 related some very 
interesting incidents from Dr. Lewis E. Theiss' ('021 book,

■ P. S. E. A. MEETING 

The annual meeting of Bucknellians in education was 
held in Harrisburg on December 27, 1962. in connection 
with the Pennsylvania State Education Association Conven- 
tion in session at that time. 

Mr. Frank M. VanDevender '50, elementary supervisor 
of Shamokin Area Joint Schools, presented a very interest- 
ink talk on the topic, "Practical In-Service," in which he 
explained the coordination of the Upper Susquehanna Valley 
Program of Cooperative Research ( conducted by Bucknell 
University ) with the Shamokin School System. 

Bucknell classes represented among those educators in 
attendance covered a 50-year spread, the earliest class repre- 
sented being 1909 and the latest class, 1959. John H. 
"Buck" Shott '22. Alumni Secretary, served as master of 


Thirty members and guests attended the regular monthly 
meeting of the Bucknell Alumni Club of Harrisburg at the 
Central Y. M. C. A. on January 3, 1963. Among those 

present were four students from Argentina, guests of Allen 
Jones '25. 

The program was devoted to Bucknell athletics. Repre- 
sentatives from the University were football coaches. Wil- 
liam J. Wrabley '51 and Roger Oberlin. Coach Wrabley 
gave a very interesting and informative talk on athletics and 
athletes at Bucknell. Coach Oberlin informed us that he 
recruits in this area and asked that we inform him of any 
prospective scholar-athletes. 


Approximately 80 Alumni, friends, and guests attended 
the dinner meeting at McAllister and Sons on February 1, 
1963. to celebrate the founding of Bucknell. 

The speaker for the evening was Dr. James A. Gathings, 
professor of political science and chairman of the depart- 
ment. Dr. Gathings spoke about "Bucknell Today" and 
included a discussion of certain unique programs now being 
undertaken at Bucknell such as "The Lollipop College," 
"Burma Bucknell Week End." and the "Institute for Foreign 
Students." Head Football Coach Robert H. Odell and As- 
sistant Alumni Secretary C. Bruce Rossiter "56 also attended 
the affair and spoke briefly. 

A pleasant surprise at the dinner was the attendance of 
Mrs. George Buckley Warder I Anita Wetherill I , the great- 
grandaughter of William Bucknell. Also attending the 
dinner were Willoughby Christine Warder and Mrs. Kenneth 
Miller ( Anita Warder ) , daughters of Mrs. Warder, and a 
daughter-in-law, Mrs. William Ward Warder. 

At a "short" business meeting. Daniel F. Griffith '36 was 
elected president to succeed Robert H. Taylor '48. Other 
officers elected were: Albert H. Fenstermacher '33, vice 
president; Mrs. Jean Walton Clemmer '43, secretary; James 
E. Pangburn '54, treasurer; Mrs. Alice Tyson Buek '36. P. 
Herbert Watson '37. Robert H. Taylor '48, Donald Man- 
ning '52. and Robert W. Dill. Jr. '57. members of the ex- 
ecutive committee. Jack Brothers '58 was elected to the 
executive committee to fill the unexpired term of James Pang- 
burn '54. 

Arrangements for this successful affair were made by P. 
Herbert Watson '37 with assistance from the officers of the 


Eight alumni clubs held meetings during February and 
in each case Bucknell's 117th birthday was celebrated. Un- 
fortunately, because of an early printer's deadline, reports 
from seven of these clubs had not been received in the 
Alumni Office as we went to press. Therefore, the following 
is our brief review of these meetings.

chapter of Phi Beta Kappa and Pi Beta Phi. 
Her interest in work for the blind which be- 
gan in 1925 lead her into activities in braille 

Although she is perhaps best known for her 
braille transcriptions in the field of mathe- 
matics, from high school through the univer- 
sity courses, she has done outstanding work in 
a great variety of subjects: literature, law, 
philosophy, science and at least eight foreign 
languages, including Amharic with its 250 
characters. For her work in transcribing the 
gospels for use in Ethiopia, she was cited by 
the grateful government of Ethiopia. The win- 
ner of many awards of merit, she was the re- 
cipient of the award of "Distinguished Daugh- 
ter of Pennsylvania" and the Bucknell Uni- 
versity Alumni Association in 1959 presented 
her with the Award for Recognized Contribu- 
tions and Service to Fellowmen. 

She is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Henry 
'28) ; two nieces, Mrs. ANNA ZERBY Sum- 
med]! '26; Miss MARGARET WEBB ZERBY 
'30: and a sister-in-law. Mrs. John C. Downs 
( GERTRUDE STEPHENS '99), to all of 
whom go our heartfelt sympathies.

For January twenty-six I write 

And read without a glass of any kind 

And have no need of hearing aid at all. 

In church choir I still sing a tenor tone 

And need a doctor only once a year. 

God surely has blessed me through many years, 

For which I bless and thank Him each new day.

Having for several years edited the Bucknell 
Alumni Monthly, which later became THE 
BUCKNELL ALUMNUS, I share the con- 
sciousness of space shortage which plagues the 
present editors. For that reason I refrained 
from sending items for the November issue 
because of the deservedly large space accorded 
the obituary notice on MARY STANTON 
Speicher. And I made only a short report for 
the January issue because of the length of 
my report on the career of CHARLES FRAN- 
CIS POTTER. But this time I'll include sev- 
eral items dealing with the activities of other 
members of the best class Bucknell ever sent 
out (adv.). 

FREG ZUG is one of our most faithful re- 
porters. He reports that he is still home guard 
while Elizabeth runs the junior casual depart- 
ment of Jonasson's Ladies' Store. 

From Zug I learn that GEORGE MATTIS 
is still carrying on a real estate business in 
Oakland. Calif., and acting as consultant en- 
gineer for various projects. Those of you 
who have seen the beautiful Golden Gate 
Bridge will be interested to know that George 
had some part in planning it. 

JOE WEDDLE, according to Zug, is active 
in scout work. Joe's sister, MARY (Mrs. 
William R. Lyon). Zug says, is active as coun- 
selor for the Tri Delta chapter at the Univer- 
sity of Arizona. (Thanks, Zug, for these 

HELENA OLDS, according to GEORGE 
STREET '10, who called on her last summer, 
since her retirement as professor of French 
at New Paltz State Teachers College, has given 
much time to gardening. She cultivates 200 
varieties of lilies! (Thanks, George, for this 
news.) George himself is moving about the 
country representing the American Associa- 
tion of Retired Persons (adv.). Those of 
you who haven't joined this organization yet 
should do so at once. Its beautifully illus- 
trated magazine, Modern Maturity, is worth 
the price of admission. 

GEORGE RIGGS is proud of his 18 grand- 
children; maybe there are 19 by now, since 
George reported last fall.

and me in Lakeland, Fla. We had a good

■•" June Reunion — 1963 






It seems but a short time ago that the '08e 
were the center of attention at their 50th r 
union. Literally, we were the talk of tl 
town, and we basked in all the attention v 

Now we have a chance to do it again. Tho; 
who were here for the 50th will not need an 
urging. If at all possible, they will be hei 
and, we hope, many others who couldn't mak 
it for the 50th. 

As perhaps you already know, we are goin 
to miss some of our most ardent reunioner; 
the most recent ones being STEWART DW 
art and Bart had been ill for some time. How 
ever, Stewart and his wife were at our 50t! 
and enjoyed it immensely. Bart was ill fo 
eight years. He leaves a wife, a daughte 
and a son, BENJAMIN '55. 

I learned of BOB STEELE'S death whei 
CHARLIE and Ethel NICELY and I visitec , 
CARL SPROUT the week before Christmas.; 
Bob is one of our class whom we honor foi 
the splendid career he had in the teaching 
profession. From public school superinten 
dent he advanced to the presidency of Clarior 
State College and later to a similar positio: 
at California State College. After Worlo 
War II, he served as state director of Penn-' 
sylvania Colleges' Veteran Training Program. 
He had furthered his education at Columbia 
University, receiving his master's and Docto 
of Philosophy degrees. Bob, too, was at oil 
50th reunion. 

We found CARL SPROUT a very happy 
man. He proudly showed us a book of let- 
ters and tributes from his friends and co 
workers on the staff of the Harrisburg Patriot. 
Sixty-five members of the editorial staff hon- 
ored their "Chief," as they called the man- 
aging editor who had "taught them, inspired 
them, molded their lives" at a banquet on the 
evening of November 30. 1962. Carl's editor- 
ship had covered a period of 40 years and nat- 
urally the guests included representations of 
many professions and from many parts of the 

Carl and Helen, his wife, were planning to 
spend the Christmas season in Picture Rocks 
with the family. After that, his intention was 
to write a letter to each of us — a letter of 
invitation to attend the 55th reunion of our 
class. Those letters were not written — Carl 
died on December 31, 1962, at the Divine 
Providence Hospital in Williamsport.

In her Christmas greetings AMY BOLLIN- 
GER reports that she and another Reynolds-

a cordial invitation to attend a recep- 
tion on Saturday, June 1, 1963, from 
2:30 to 4:30 P. M., in Larison Hall 
Living Room. 

SARA RAY WAY visited her daughter and 
family in Evanston, 111., over the holidays and 
part of January. 

JOHN (HEINE) BANK, at this writing, is 
a patient in Veterans' Hospital, East Orange, 
N. J. Hurry up and get well, Heine; there's 
an Alumni Day in the not too distant offing 
and you never miss one of those. 

It seems only a few years ago that we were 
telling of the children of 1910 classmates en- 
tering Bucknell. Now it's grandchildren. 
KATHERINE BAILEY Hoffman tells me her 
grandson has been accepted for September. 
1963. And GURNEY SHOLL boasts that of 
his thirteen grandchildren one is in Bucknell 
now and two will enter next September, with 
more to follow. Can any 1910er beat that 
record ? 

When you read this, SARA WAY and your 
class correspondent will be enjoying sunny 
St. Petersburg, Fla., for a few weeks. As 
usual, we look forward to meeting members of 
the St. Petersburg Bucknell Club at one of 
their meetings while there.

cently retired and says she is now enjoying

As you know, DR. ANDREW R. E. WYANT 
'92 was elected to the National Football Hall of 
Fame in 1962. As Andy was on the West Coast at 
the time of the award dinner in New York (De- 
cember 4, 1962) , his award was accepted by WIL- 
LIAM G. "TURK" JONES '29, of PhilipsJourg, 
his fraternity brother in Phi Gamma Delta, 
and president of the local chapter's alumni asso- 
ciation. Besides "Turk" who occupied a seat of 
prominence on the dias at the dinner, other 
Bucknellians in attendance included: Benton 
Kribbs M.S.'59, Director of Athletics; Robert 
Odell, Head Coach of Football; Fred Prender

of her life that she gave up her teaching and 
church music with reluctance. 

With deep regret do we record the death 
of BERTHA GEIS Beibigheiser — teacher, 
housewife, librarian, playwright. Bertha was 
one of our "top ten" in college days. After 
graduation she found time to be a wife and 
mother and also to participate in many and 
varied activities. To her family her class- 
mates extend their sincere sympathy. 

We regret to record the death of D. JESSE 
PARK, August 24, 1962. Jesse spent most of 
his career as a teacher in the schools of Ha- 
zleton where he taught mathematics in the 
boys' vocational department. Retired in 1952, 
he devoted much of his leisure time to solving 
difficult mathematical problems. Our sincere 
sympathy is herewith extended to his family.

"Friendship is the shining pattern we weave 
into the tapestry of remembered Christmases." 

We received many, many Christmas greet- 
ings and letters. My 300 words will not per- 
mit me to mention all the names if I'm to 

MARCH 1963 


send any other news. I think it was one of 
the happiest Christmases we have ever had or 
at least Pop said so. 

After ailing all summer with a heavy cold 
and a bad ear infection, I was rested and re- 
laxed ready for the invasion. The Camp Hill 
folks came the day before, f was sitting at 
the kitchen table making some cherry drops 
as Pop and a neighbor were looking on. In 
they came — Elizabeth, Hibby — then Bill car- 
rying a beautiful little eight-month-old daugh- 
ter. I thought I would have a stroke. She 
is one of the most adorable children I have 
ever seen. Just seemed as though she had 
always been with us. They call her Saundra 
Lynn — Sandy for short. Bill wanted to call 
her Maze, but Elizabeth didn't like the name 
for a baby. Then she said, '"There is only 
one Maze, and she can't be duplicated." Nice 
of her wasn't it? Now I have six grand- 

I seemed to have renewed strength to stand 
this shock. The day after, my daughter, 
granddaughter, and I were relaxing — the two 
small ones were in bed. The parcel post man 
stopped. Debbie said "Grammy, are you ex- 
pecting a package?" By that time they were 
at the door. Then they asked if they could 
open it. From Bailey Banks and Biddle, Phil- 
adelphia, an exquisite pair of sterling cande- 
labra engraved Bucknell Class of 1912. The 
card read, "To Maze, Appreciation from Class 
of 1912." I was speechless. Elizabeth said, 
"Mom, I've never seen the time when you 
couldn't talk." Words are inadequate when 
I say I don't know how r to thank you for such a 
beautiful gift. I'm happiest when I am do- 
ing for others. When I was asked to be re- 
union chairman and I accepted I thought it 
was up to me to do the best that I possibly 
knew how. I didn't expect nor deserve such 
a reward. 

In the Crandall's Christmas greeting were 
two snaps — one of me presiding at the busi- 
ness session — the other of the "big parade." 
It was very clear. I could recognize LAW- 
LEW ROBINSON with 1912 banner, COLE- 
RUTH and sister, ED DUFTON and Mrs. 
Dufton, EARL BARTHOLEMEW and Mar- 
garet, GRACE CRANDALL F09, Rip in his 
striped jacket. SCHEIDY EVERETT and 
NELLIE '21— then in the background LEO 
ROCKWELL '07. I appreciated it so much, 
because I didn't march down the hill. You 
know DUWARD FRAMPTON toted the 
RIEHLS and me. In order to get a parking 
space near the "gym" Duward said he was 
a trustee. A little white lie but then one 
can do anything after 50 years. 

Received the statement on our "high financ- 
es": Sale of Reunion Books, $71.00; our 
expenses for the paper, stencils, envelopes, 
postage for our questionnaires, $13.29; paper, 
stencils, and binding for our books, $22.85; 
leaving a balance of $34.86. This will be 
added to $16.35 left over from our 45th which 
is a total of $51.21. The treasurer of the 
University will place this in a special ac- 
count for use by the Class of 1912 at its next 

BOB MEYER'S wife has just returned from 
Lewistown Hospital, having gone there for 
corrective surgery for a hip which was broken 
several months ago. 

LIZ and RED LOWTHER '14 have moved 
from South Orange, N. J., to Harrisburg. Red 
is in a nursing home there. Liz has an apart- 
ment near her daughter, ANNE '41. Her ad- 
dress is 801 Walnut St., Lemoyne. 

On Evelyn Riehl's Christmas greeting she 
said: "Paul's hip has been bothering him 


more and more, so tomorrow he enters Toledo 
Hospital for surgery on his hip. He will have 
a pin and plate removed and a metal ball and 
rod substituted. So, again, I am glad his 
reunion was last June instead of next June." 
No doubt he will be home now so send him a 

I attended the Robert Shaw Chorale and 
Orchestra concert on January 4 in the Davis 
Gymnasium. It was beautiful. Coming out 
of the "gym" the "hill" was a picture. A 
cold clear night, snow on the ground, and the 
many lights, made it fascinating. 

It's still very cold with about six inches of 
snow, but the seed and flower catalogues are 
being devoured by many. 

If you "elderly people" go to see Mona Lisa 
be sure the elevators are working. 

After all the excitement it's back to the 
old routine. I feel like praying the prayer of 
the old Virginia Negro "O, Lord, prop me 
up in all my leaning places." 

And now with much love and appreciation 
and a great big thank you from Pop and me, 
I am. 

Yours most humbly.

excellent for reaching the $10,000 goal for 
our class memorial gift. This should cause 
every member to rejoice and make our June 
reunion a special time of rejoicing and thank- 

Marwood also sent me the following news 
regarding our 50th reunion. The banquet will 
be held at the Lewisburger on Friday at 6:00 
P. M., and JACK RICE '14 will show old-time 
slides of Bucknell in our day. On Saturday 
morning the class will meet for a class meet-

Christmas greetings were received from 

McNALL, RAY and EVA ('12) APGAR and 
the Rev. and Mrs. JOHN LUKE GEHMAN. 
Some of the faithful failed to write this year 
and we hope all is well with them.

Class of 1914 

a cordial invitation to attend a recep-

2:30 to 4:30 P. M., in Larison Hall 
Living Room. 

RUTH and JACK RICE are well. We see 
them frequently when we are in Lewisburg 
and hear about their children and grandchil- 
dren. A grandson, Mark Reed, is a fresh- 
man at Bucknell. 

The news items FLORENCE REIMEN-

During commencement week we had a nice 
visit with EDNA and MARWOOD GLOVER

life and put a lot into it here at 912 Elm." 
The "we" refers to her sister, Marjorie '16. 
The home address is the same — Tacoma Park

No messages from HARRY STAHLER or 
RAY APGAR. We appreciate their cards 
which indicate they are well and happy. 

JOHN LUKE CEHMAN and his wife, Jes- 
sie, lead busy lives. The outstanding item of 
interest in this year's Christmas letter is "On 
March 15 of this year at Topeka (Kansas) 
John Luke was appointed and installed as 
grand chaplain of the Grand Lodge of An- 
cient Free and Accepted Masons of Kansas." 

Saga of HARRY and DORA 

1962 and '63 — so far — were a bit unusual. 
On August 19, departure was to be made for 
Finland and Russia. Monday night, August 

13, Harry suddenly changed his mind and 
went to the Citizens' General Hospital, New 
Kensington, instead. His ailment was eased 
with dispatch and he was released the fol- 
lowing Saturday. No need to say plans for 
the trip were abandoned. Friday afternoon 
we listened to our plane fly over the hospital. 
Feelings were mixed. 

Ordered to stay put in New Kensington till 
mid-October, plans for a trip to northern 
climes were postponed. Dora consoled her- 
self by learning to drive the family car, a 
rejuvenating experience. 

New Year's Eve just passed, Harry and 
Dora decided to see the old year out in Pitts- 
burgh. In the hotel, during the night Dora 
became ill. Back to New Kensington, next 
day, she was hustled off to the hospital. Many 
tests were made but the cause of the malady 
still remains a mystery. She is recovering 
very fast and is elated when she recalls the 
words of the doctor "physically you are a 
thirty year old." So — Finland, Russia and 
other points of interest — here we come — in 

Though three months late, 

A Happy New Year to you all.

TN the March 1962 issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS 
A we published, for the first time, a special eight page sec- 
tion of book reviews kindly submitted to the editors by 
members of the Bucknell faculty. Response to this venture 
through orders placed at the University Bookstore was grati- 
fying and suggested to us that we should once again present 
this section as an intellectual service to our readers. 

Our sincere thanks are extended to seven members of the 
faculty who gave freely of their time to help make this 
service possible. Faculty members contributing book re- 
views were: Dr. Emil J. Polak '51, professor of mathematics 
and astronomy; Dr. Manning A. Smith, professor of chem- 
istry; Harvey M. Powers, assistant professor of English and 
director of the University Theatre; Dr. Maurice Hillson, 
associate professor of education ; Charles H. Coder M.S. '59, 
professor of mechanical engineering and chairman of the de- 
partment; Dr. Robert R. Gross, associate professor of En- 
glish; and Dr. James A. Gathings, professor of political 
science and chairman of the department. 

Please note that each review has been coded with a 
number for your convenience in ordering these books 
through the Bucknell University Bookstore. An order blank 
appears on the back cover of this issue. Books ordered will 
be mailed to Alumni pre-paid from the publisher; therefore, 
do not be concerned if your entire order does not arrive at 
one time. 


[1.] Astronomy by Fred Hoyle. Doubleday & Company, 
Inc., 1962. 320 pages. $12.95 (hardback). 

Astronomy is the oldest of the sciences and in a certain 
sense is also the newest of the sciences. This new sci- 
ence of astronomy is the wedding of several of our physical 
sciences with that of classical astronomy. Within this frame- 
work this volume is a history of astronomy dramatically 
narrated by Fred Hoyle with great skill and authority. He 
has brilliantly lead the reader from the earliest known astro- 
nomical discoveries up to the latest modern developments. 
The 400 illustrations and diagrams make this a book for 
study and reference for many years to come. For those 
readers who require further discussions and explanations in 
the realm of physics, the author has included extensive dis- 
cussions on light, electricity and magnetism. Nuclear physics 

march 1963 

appears in later chapters where its important applications to 
modern astrophysics are described at length. 

The author traces in considerable detail the development 
of ever more powerful instruments and techniques for exam- 
ination of the solar system, the stars, our galaxy and the 
galaxies beyond. This volume is a masterpiece of descrip- 
tion and synthesis of man's attempt to understand the uni- 
verse around him. 

[2.] The Changing Universe by John Pfeiffer. Random 
House, 1956. 235 pages. $4.75 (hardback) . 

This popularly written book explores one of the most ex- 
citing fields of modern science — the new astronomy 
called radio astronomy. 

Distant nebulae and galaxies, star systems lying far be- 
yond the edges of our "Milky Way," are powerful "broad- 
casting stations." They are emitting intense radio waves, 
which can be heard by mammoth new radio telescopes espe- 
cially designed for exploring the sources of these radio sig- 
nals. Thus, in addition to observing light waves through 
optical telescopes, astronomers today are listening to radio 
waves from the depths of space. 

Mr. Pfeiffer describes the research of the pioneering in- 
vestigators and the unusual formations that have been ob- 
served and identified so far. Clearly the radio astronomers 
have found a new universe — a rich and unsuspected source 
of discoveries, of stubborn problems and mysteries. Mr. 
Pfeiffer tells, too, a story of people — lacing his narrative 
with colorful anecdotes, personal records and direct quota- 
tions from the scientists themselves. 

Cosmic exploration through radio astronomy could car- 
ry man to and beyond "the very edges of the universe." 

This fascinating account charts the path for one avenue

[3.] The Unity of the Universe by D. W. Sciama. Double- 
day & Company, Inc., 1959. 220 pages. $3.95 (hard- 
back), $.95 (paperback). 

Cosmology — the science that considers the universe, its 
major features and the laws that govern them — is of in- 
creasing importance to us all. In this book one of Britain's 
outstanding young cosmologists has written a lucid and ex- 
citing survey of the history of cosmology for the layman. 

Part I describes how our present observational picture of 
the universe developed, from its beginnings in early Greek 


measurements on the size of the solar system to the latest 
discoveries of distant, receding galaxies made by new, giant 
telescopes and mathematical calculations. 

Part II presents various contemporary and even radical 
theories about the universe and explanations of how distant 
matter may influence nearby matter — -and the consequences. 
This involves novel discussions of the principle of inertia, 
the theory of relativity, nuclear fission and fusion, and the 
expanding universe concept — all described so that they can 
be understood without a formal background in physics or 

[4.] The Universe . . . Plan or Accident? by Robert E. D. 
Clark. Muhlenberg Press, 1961. 236 pages. $3.50 
(hardback) . 

This carefully structured presentation handles the relig- 
ious implications of modern science with accuracy and 
honesty. Its presentation will please the reader who is a 
"doubting Thomas" and therefore feels he must discover the 
truth about the origin and purpose of the universe and life 
for himself. The author of this book does not pursue what 
is known from science and history about the origin of the 
universe simply to confirm what he already knows. He fol- 
lows a scientific method by probing into what is unknown to 
see whether we can find an answer to the question posed by 
the title of his book. 

Because the author deliberately seeks out unbeaten trails, 
reading what he has to say is like an adventure which at any 
time may bring us face to face with the unexpected. We fol- 
low the author as he tells us about the theories of Demo- 
critus, Plato and Aristotle, the mediaeval Schoolmen, New- 
ton, and Einstein. His conclusion is: "this we know — that 
science brings us a vista of unending grandeur and wonder, 
a sense of the unfathomable riches of God, which was denied 
to former generations." 

[5.] Of Stars and Men — Human Response to an Expanding 
Universe by Harlow Shapley. Beacon Press, 1958. 157 
pages. $3.50 (hardback). 

Those who have interested themselves in astronomy and 
who have on occasions pondered the size and scope of 
the universe, have undoubtedly reflected upon its immensity 
in comparison to our earth and to our solar system. For 
those that have asked the age-old questions — Are we the only 
human beings in this incredibly vast universe? — Are there 
other people, more or less like us — perhaps even superior 
to us, on other planets? — this small volume by Harlow 
Shapley will provide food for thought and an approach to 
answering such questions. 

"We are not alone"; the famous Harvard astronomer 
estimates that there might well be a hundred million planets 
capable of supporting our kind of life. 

Reflections on the author's discourse will stimulate 
thought-provoking questions channeled through an evolu- 
tionary period covering billions of years or more. Our 
human vanities and anthropocentric arguments will be great- 
ly challenged. 

This book devoted to star facts and human destiny gives 
to the reader the author's beliefs bearing on mankind in the 
universe of physics and sensation. It is a philosophic treat- 
ment for the thinking man. 



[6.] Crystals and Crystal Growing by Alan Holden, Phylis 
Singer. Doubleday and Company. $1.45 (paperback). 

This is a very readable account of the phenomena of 
growing crystals. If your children are looking for ex- 
periments, and you are getting nervous, both of you should 
welcome this book. It contains twelve "recipes" for grow- 
ing handsome crystals of inexpensive substances (alum, 
etc.). The theoretical discussions are masterpieces of sim- 
plification and parents who have had a limited amount of 
science will have a lot of fun with a scientifically inclined 
offspring. Probably this will be most successful with chil- 
dren of high school age. The discussions often involve the 
concept of entropy, a rather elusive idea for many of us. 
But so skillful is the writing that the notion of order vs. dis- 
order in nature is painlessly developed. Besides, the recipes 
for growing crystals, there are many things to build ranging 
from atomic models (gum drops and tooth picks) to a home- 
made wooden spectroscope. Recommended for imaginative 
parents with imaginative children. 

[7.] Men and Decisions by Lewis L. Strauss. Doubleday and 
Company, Inc., 1962. $6.95 (hardback) . 

This is the fascinating autobiography of a man who be- 
came one of the most controversial figures in the country 
a few years ago when the Senate refused to confirm his 
appointment as Secretary of Commerce. His career as a 
public servant began when he walked into Herbert Hoover's 
office after World War I to volunteer his services to Hoover's 
relief program. In the 20's and 30's, he was a highly suc- 
cessful financier but with the onset of World War II he again 
entered government service. His most important post was 
that of Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission in the 
middle 50's. His accounts of Dixon-Yates, the Oppenheimer 
affair, and the hydrogen bomb controversy are all from his 
point of view of course. But students of these happenings 
will find this interesting reading. Strauss gives us some 
fascinating insights into the argument within the Manhattan 
District to try to get the Japanese to surrender without using 
the atom bomb. His account of his near disaster with Ivar 
Kreuger, the swindler, is almost droll and his account of his 
visit with the doomed Senator Robert Taft is touching. Any- 
one interested in current affairs should enjoy this highly per- 
sonal account of recent history. 


[8.] The Black Cloud by Fred Hoyle. New American Liter- 
ature, Harper. $2.95 (paperback). 

SCIENCE fiction is an avocation of several distinguished 
scientists. Fred Hoyle is a well known British astrono- 
mer, and his story involves the problems which arise when a 
cloud of interstellar dust gets between the earth and the sun. 
His description of the reaction of the political, economic, 
and scientific sections of the community are very funny. 
Characteristically, the political units do not see it as a glo- 
bal problem but as a national one, resulting in a lot of play- 


ful satire on the Anglo-American alliance to say nothing of 
the cold war. Then there are the little wars within the sci- 
entific community. And most amusing of all is the battle 
between the scientist and the entrenched bureaucracy of gov- 
ernment. The cloud itself turns out to have some interesting 
characteristics of its own, but it would detract from the 
story to say more than this. 

[9.] The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman. The 
MacMillan Company, 1962. 511 pages. $6.95 (hard- 
back). $.95 (paperback). 

THIS book was recommended by a colleague in the history 
department. He said it would read like a novel and such 
was the case. It begins with a breathtaking description of 
the funeral of Edward VI in 1910. The early part of Miss 
Tuchman's account sets out the circumstances leading to the 
outbreak of World War I on August 1, 1914. But most of 
it is devoted to the military and diplomatic action in the 
month that followed. It is the invasion of France through 
Belgium which is emphasized although the early naval ac- 
tion in the Mediterranean, and the clash with the Russians 
at Tannenberg received fairly detailed attention. 

In the early chapters, Miss Tuchman describes the way 
in which the plans of Germany and France evolved. When 
the time for action came, it was the Germans who controlled 
the initiative. Indeed, things went splendidly, quite ac- 
cording to plan until one of the German commanders made 
a great miscalculation. Sweeping along as the German right 
(Channel) flank, General von Kluck decided to wheel in east 
of Paris. The French perceived their opportunity and moved 
in boldly on the exposed flank while launching a general 
offensive. This was the Battle of the Marne, and it is here 
that the account ends. 

The central figures of this important month of world 
history emerge from Miss Tuchman's account as highly tal- 
ented yet fallible human beings. In fact, she makes it so 
interesting that one almost forgets that war has been the 
most wasteful, tragic, and unproductive human enterprise of 
the twentieth century.

[10.] The Theatre of the Absurd by Martin Esslin. Double- 
day and Company. 355 pages. $1.45 (paperback) . 

AS theatre-goers, a great many of us are inclined to shy 
away from such plays as Genet's The Blacks, Beckett's 
Endgame, and Ionesco's The Chairs as something incompre- 
hensible, distasteful, infuriating, or all three. In his stimu- 
lating introduction to this newest of theatrical conventions, 
Esslin suggests a reason for this reaction. We in America 
are still too caught up in our dream of progress and the 
good life to be ready to confront a vision of life from which 
the sense of meaning and purpose has evaporated. Our 
euphoria, however, in no way diminishes the artistic validity 
of the Theatre of the Absurd, and Esslin speaks so com- 
pellingly of this validity as to lead the reader toward an 

acquired taste for what he once may have thought was not 
his cup of tea. 

Esslin's chief point is that, in the highly subjective Thea- 
tre of the Absurd, the playwright tries to communicate his 
own sense of being in an inexplicable, irrational world. 
Rather than seeking to do this in terms of clearly motivated 
characters playing out logically predictable destinies, the 
playwright evokes poetic images which encourage audiences 
to laugh at the absurdity of the human condition. This 
laughter is healthy, Esslin maintains, because it brings our 
anxieties out of hiding and necessitates our piecing together 
of a world out of recognizable yet disparate fragments of

Frechtman. Grove Press, 1960. 115 pages. $1.95

Grove Press, 1961. 120 pages. $1.75 (paperback).

[ 14. ] Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet 
and Pm Feelin' So Sad by Arthur L. Kopit. Hill and 
Wang, 1960. $1.35 (paperback) . 

These five plays afford a good look at the Theatre of the 
Absurd, four of them directly and one through the prism 
of parody. All have in common the unmistakable hallmarks 
of the new tradition. Each projects a state of being, a high- 
ly personal vision of a world in which logic has been re- 
duced to absurdity, in which language has broken down 
beyond repair as a vehicle of communication, in which 
human beings are at once terrible and ludicrous in their 
isolation, and in which characters can no longer be known 
by their actions— for what motivates them is either myste- 
riously hidden or utterly rejected as incomprehensible in 
the first place. 

The horror underlying the farce of existence is intensely 
projected in The Balcony. Genet sees his world as a fantas- 
tic house of fetishism, the patrons of which shed their identi- 
ties in order to assume empty images of power for the pur- 
poses of erotic pleasure. It is a nightmarish ritual in a hall 
of mirrors in which reality loses itself among endlessly re- 
flected images. 

The Pinter plays also evoke an irrational fear of the 
unknown, but in these cases the fear is made even more ter- 
rifying in that it arises in the midst of what at first seem 
commonplace circumstances. The hero of The Birthday 
Party is seeking asylum from something or other as a board- 
er in the home of strangers. A pair of agents of an undesig- 
nated organization accidentally find the hero there and force 
him to celebrate his birthday even though the date is wrong. 
As the party turns into a Walpurgisnacht, they subject him 
to a brainwashing that is at once laughable and hair-raising. 
And next morning they take him, now a passive automaton, 
away to an unnamed destination. Beyond this image of the 
precariousness of the individual's sense of security, one of 
the most terrifyingly funny things about the play is our 
realization that this is how people speak, followed quickly 
by the recognition that people just don't get through to each 
other. The Room casts a deep shadow of what lies beyond 
the door to our innermost sense of security. The force of 
this short play is very nearly dissipated by bringing into the 
room a somewhat disappointing symbol of what lies beyond 
the door. 

march 1963 


One Way Pendulum at first seems to cradle us in the 
arms of Lewis Carrollian whimsy. Kirby Groomkirby has 
conditioned himself to eat only in response to the sound of 
"No Sale" being rung up on a cash register. His current 
project is teaching five hundred "Speak Your Weight" 
weighing machines to sing the Hallelujah Chorus. His fa- 
ther brings home a do-it-yourself kit, builds a life-sized mod- 
el of Old Bailey in the livingroom, and presses a button to 
start proceedings only to find that his son is on trial. When 
the complex image completely emerges we realize that what 
is really on trial is modern suburban society. Even when 
the shadows begin to grow, however, Simpson's theatre is a 
gayer one than Genet's or Pinter's. 

For outrageous, unbelievable, good fun Oh Dad, Poor 
Dad is hard to beat in the modern theatre. See it if you can 
in its current off-Broadway production; if you cannot, the 
work reads nearly as well as it plays. Being a parody, it has 
all the trappings of the Theatre of the Absurd, but it plays 
with a psychological reality rather than presenting an in- 
tensely felt, valid image of it. Kopit indicates his parodis- 
tic intention in the sub-title: "A Pseudoclassical Tragifarce 
in a Bastard French Tradition." 

[15.] Brecht, the Man and His Work by Martin Esslin. 
Doubleday and Company, 1961. 351 pages. $1.45 
(paperback) . 

Martin Esslin, one of the most articulate people writing 
about drama and theatre today, gives us in this ab- 
sorbing book a masterful study of one of the most perplex- 
ing geniuses of the modern stage. As the story of an intense- 
ly original, creative individual forced by his convictions to 
leave Nazi Germany, wander in exile throughout the war, 
and return to an existence that was a precarious compro- 
mise after the war, Esslin's book is not only an engrossing 
tale but also a history lesson for today. As an examination 
of a poet's work, it is a penetrating analysis of plays that 
succeed in being great in spite of the fact that they fail their 
playwright's intention. 

In Esslin's sympathetic account, Bertolt Brecht emerges 
a paradox. He was first and foremost a poet who found it 
necessary to create his own language — a kind of "New 
Standard German" — in order to express himself. His plays 
have exerted considerable influence in the West, even though 
their poetry does not translate well. Most paradoxically, he 
is the greatest Marxist poet and playwright, yet he was and 
is under constant attack by the Communist world. As Esslin 
puts it, the paradox of Brecht is an expression of "the deep, 
fundamental contradiction between a creative personality 
ultimately subject to the laws of its own inner being . . . 
and the party, an apparatus of power constantly shifting its 
tactics and demands behind a facade of rigidly unchanging 

CAN we be equal and excellent too? John W. Gardner 
thinks so. He says, "I believe that an answer is to be 
found. But it requires first that we restate the problem in 
somewhat more constructive terms: 'How can we provide 
opportunities and rewards for individuals of every degree of 
ability so that individuals at every level will realize their full 
potentialities, perform at their best and harbor no resent- 
ment toward any other level?' " He states that some of "the 
ingredients of a solution" may be in the "emphasis on indi- 
vidual performance." The comprehensive high school can, 
by its organization, maintain "differential treatment of stu- 
dents at different levels of ability." It can do it "in such 
a way as to minimize invidious distinctions between chil- 
dren." This, according to Gardner, may be one good way. 
Add to this comprehensive high school "compelling goals 
that are shared by conflicting parties," and you may well 
be moving toward excellence. 

Dr. Gardner's book is a refreshing one. It is a con- 
structive look at education. 

It is comforting to know that men like Gardner and Dr. 
Harold Taylor, ex-president of Sarah Lawrence, are becom- 
ing the responsible critics to whom one can turn for insight 
and suggested solutions. Gardner, in his earlier Rockefeller 
Panel Report on Education and in this book, is honest, in- 
sightful, and able to offer realistic solutions to help us get 
on with the "pursuit of excellence." 


[17.] The Amidon Elementary School by Carl F. Hansen. 
Prentice-Hall, 1962. 252 pages. $5.95 (hardback). 

THE Amidon experiment is no experiment at all. Mr. 
Hansen may be so enthusiastic about his program, and 
working so diligently on it, that he does not have time to 
probe deeply into the field of education and its past history. 
His book frequently misstates facts concerning a whole host 
of areas in teaching and learning. His experiment in "basic 
education" is an approach well known to all who can read 
the history. His whole concept of intellectual growth and 
the development of intellectual power has long been rejected 
by competent psychologists, sociologists, and educators. This 
fervent desire to return to the good old days — whether en- 
gendered because of a lost youth or some other equally un- 
attainable nostalgic desire — is foolish. 

Honors classes in the first grade, the whole class method 
of teaching (completely contravening Dr. Gardner's thesis) , 
and other equally unrealistic and very questionable ideas 
may sound good to that parent who is anxious for his child's 
success in the college board examinations. As a theory of 
real education and learning it leaves so much to be desired, 
in view of what is needed, that consideration of the "Ami- 
don" plan as an answer to our ills would injure us more than 
help us educationally. There are so many better new ways 
of doing things that a return to mythologically based old 
ways seems rather ridiculous in the Space Age.

[18.] The Brain Watchers by Martin L. Gross. Random 
House, 1962. 304 pages. $4.95 (hardback) . 

Martin L. Gross starts his Philippic concerning testing in 
American life by stating that "the obvious contest — 
man versus the testers — may be shaping up as the battle of 
the century in which, as preliminary armament, we may 
have to relearn entirely the rules of getting a job . . ." 



Mr. Gross, a journalist by trade, deals primarily with the 
antastic degree to which tests — especially personality tests 
—are beginning to govern much of the school and business 

There is no doubt that this book will engender much 
leated reaction in those in the field of testing. However, 
jefore the test defenders relegate this book to the "quack- 
ery" or "sensationalism" area of discussion, it would be 
wise to state that Mr. Gross points out some very real dan- 
gers in this test-ridden life of ours. He is very concerned 
that tests frequently are a basic invasion of privacy — "al- 
though few in the corporate ranks will ever find themselves 
tested in courts of law, millions have seen their lives altered 
with the nonsense of personality testing without even a pre- 
sumption of individual guilt." He is concerned that many 
unable, untrained, and unrestrained individuals are making 
use of highly specific and complex tests to predict things for 
which the tests were never intended. The use of the Rors- 
chach as a personality test "has been increasing alarmingly." 
The chapter entitled, "Brain Watching in Our Schools : The 
Three R's Through Graduate School," will at least put many 
laymen in touch with the state of the situation. 

It's not as bad as Gross says — but bad enough to be 

[19.] Great Teachers (portrayed by those who studied un- 
der them), edited by Houston Peterson. Random 
House. 347 pages. $1.95 (paperback). 

The much quoted statement of Henry Adams that "A 
teacher affects eternity ; he can never tell where his influ- 
ence stops," takes on a very significant meaning for the 
reader of this excellent collection of vignettes about teachers. 

The opening selection by Helen Keller recounts the 
warmth and strength of Anne Mansfield Sullivan as the 
teacher of this blind child. This item sets a tone which 
carries through to the epilogue in which Mr. Peterson sums 
up the experiences and attitudes which characterize great 
teaching. Throughout this collection the reader is allowed 
to share limited glimpses of those who influenced some of 
the great minds which have helped shape our world. 

The great teachers such as Woodrow Wilson, John Dew- 
ey, William James, and Sigmund Freud, to mention a few, 
and their great and influential students who have described 
them, make it obvious that gimmicks, flashy techniques and 
machines for learning are merely transient compared to the 
lasting achievements of a Louis Henri Sullivan, a John 
Stuart Mill, and a James Russell Lowell. These men were 
inspired by their great teachers as others today are being 

[20.] Slums and Suburbs by James B. Conant. McGraw-Hill 
Book Company, Inc., 1961. 147 pages. $1.95 (paper- 
back). $3.95 (hardback). 

Dr. Conant's commentary on schools in the metropolitan 
areas is only that. Even though he continually refers 
to and indicates his acquaintance with some of the com- 
plexities of the slum-suburb conditions of education, he rare- 
ly probes deeply. Yet, he has studied and visited these 
schools, and he is a man accorded a position of insight and 
stature in American life. For this reason he deserves a 

In general, what you will read in this book is not new, 
nor radical. It is certainly not new for the student of psy- 
chology, sociology, or for the well informed citizen who 
reads a daily newspaper. There is no question that a "West 
Side Story" education is certainly "social dynamite" and 
that the basic improvement of "slum conditions" is only a 
very small part of the total improvement of education. The 
status of Negro education, for both pupils and teachers, cer- 
tainly is appalling. Back in 1944 Warner, Havighurst, and 
Loeb in Who Shall Be Educated? The Challenge of Unequal 
Opportunities pointed this out in a very scholarly and read- 
able way. 

What Conant has done is valuable. He is a popular 
spokesman for education and may help, by his studies, to 
inch us toward some change. His conclusions are not of 
equal strength or value. Some people will question his 
method for the improvement of Negro education. But for 
the most part his conclusions are a reiteration of what has 
been said by competent observers in the past. Conant's add- 
ed impetus is welcome. Let's hope that it brings action. 


[21.] A Social History of Engineering by W. H. G. Army- 
tage. Pitman Publishing Corporation, 1961. 378 
pages. $10.00 (hardback). 

Science and engineering are related fields of endeavor, not 
identical disciplines. The engineer naturally performs 
best when he has a sound understanding of old and new 
scientific principles, but he must also be creative which is a 
modern term for inventive. 

This book provides an opportunity to learn of the many 
examples over the years of the coupling of science with in- 
vention by engineers to improve the standard of living of the 
human race. An outline of technological development of 
this nature helps the reader to gain a deeper appreciation 
for the efforts of the engineering profession. 

Essentially this is a history book. It is non-technical 
and easy to read for the layman. The author has described 
the engineering achievements that have had the greatest 
impact on civilization. The human interest factor has been 
used successfully in describing these developments and a 
description in each case of the way our lives have been 
changed by each development makes for informative read- 

[22.] Anatomy of Automation by George H. Amber and 
Paul S. Amber. Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1962. 245 pages. 
$10.00 (hardback). 

AUTOMATION is a term used a great deal today by persons 
in all walks of life. What is automation, and just how 
far have we progressed in this area? What are the future 
possibilities, and is there a scientific approach to the sub- 
ject? These questions and many more are answered by 
this book. 

The text is written by consulting engineers who have 
made some fine contributions in this field. It has not been 
written primarily for the layman, but it is sufficiently non- 

march 1963 


technical so that the average reader can learn a great deal 
about the subject. A unique feature of the book is the syste- 
matic classification of automated operations provided by the 
authors. This classification enables the reader to under- 
stand that automation has been with us for many years, and 
it also provides a challenge for future adaptations of the 
basic principles.

duction to Fortran by Harry L. Colman, Clarence 
Smalhvood, and George W. Brown. McGraw-Hill 
Book Company, Inc., 1962. 196 pages. $3.95 (paper- 
back) . 

THIS book is designed for self study for the person desir- 
ing an introduction to the use of Fortran as a machine 
language. Emphasis is placed on the use of Fortran, al- 
though some of the strategy used in general programming 
is presented. Although valuable for those interested in 
learning something about the use of computers the book has 
another interesting value in that the material presented fol- 
lows the pattern used in programmed learning and teaching 

There may be some question as to the technical value of 
the book for persons having no previous knowledge of auto- 
matic computation. However, the examples given are in 
many cases quite simple and enable the casual reader to gain 
some appreciation for this new tool of the scientist, the 
mathematician, and the engineer.

Patrick Gardner, and Mitchell R. Sharpe, Jr. Pren- 
tice-Hall, Inc., 1962. 587 pages. $12.00 (hardback). 

This book is part of the Prentice-Hall Space Technology 
Series but is written primarily for the layman. Conse- 
quently, it serves the useful purpose of providing general 
reading on the subject of "Astronautics" for all persons 
desiring a talking knowledge of the subject. 

The material is presented in a logical sequence starting 
with a brief history of space technology and ending with a 
highly interesting chapter on space medicine. Also included 
are sections on the solar system, astrogeology, astrobiology, 
space vehicle development, aerodynamics, guidance and con- 
trol, and propulsion systems. 

The authors have been closely associated with the activi- 
ties of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. 
Their combined experience is reflected in the book which is 
an excellent survey of this whole new field of human en-

WHAT are the Russians doing? This question is being 
asked quite frequently today with respect to almost 
everything from agriculture to space exploration. This book 
answers the question when directed to the subject of science 
and engineering education. The book should be on the

The philosophy of Soviet education is examined and tin

on science and engineering education with sample curricul; - 
included along with statistics concerning the numbers o

book, but far too few people have, to date, acquired ar 
understanding of the potential of the Soviet education proc

In view of the continued reduction in the number oi

[26.] Youngblood Hawke by Herman Wouk. Doubleday 
and Company, 1962. 783 pages. $7.95 (hardback). 

Youngblood Hawke, blessed by the gods with most of the 
attributes of artistic greatness, does not live to achieve 
his full stature as a novelist because he never learns self- 
discipline. The effects of the protagonist's weakness are 
made worse by the fact that he early falls under the influ- 
ence of a Bohemian set of writers, critics, and press agents 
and of theatrical personalities of assorted types. Hawke's 
dissipation and his relentless driving of himself account for 
his death just as he has reached the threshold of greatness. 
In this impressive novel, Herman Wouk displays a moral 
attitude toward life, but the moralizing is achieved without 
simpering or platitudinizing. I do not mean to disparage 
Mr. Wouk for his portrayal of Youngblood Hawke, and I do 
not mean to suggest that the novel is out of focus, when I 
say that the most skillful characterization is that of Frieda 
Winter, the selfish voluptuary, who, although she is the wife 
of another man and the mother of his children, becomes, 
secretly, Hawke's mistress. The portrayal of Frieda Win- 
ter's character is as brilliant as Flaubert's characterization 
of Emma Bovary. The full effect of the author's moral view- 
point is manifested in the episode, occurring near the end of 
the book, when Frieda and her husband are summoned to 
the boarding school in which one of their sons is enrolled. 
Having been taunted by his classmates about the stories that 
have begun to circulate concerning his mother's adultery, 
the boy has committed suicide. Worse, however, than the 
suffering brought upon Frieda's son, her husband, Hawke's 
mother, and the girl who loves him is the torment which 
Hawke and Frieda make for themselves by their own weak- 


[27.] The Points of My Compass by E. B. White. Harper 
and Row, 1962. 240 pages. $4.00 (hardback) . 

For readers who missed any of these essays when they first 
appeared in The New Yorker and for readers who will 
rejoice about having them united in one volume, Mr. 


White's publishers have performed a gratifying service, 
unerican literature cannot claim a more distinguished prac- 
itioner of the personal essay than E. B. White. He is wise, 
1 ompassionate, witty, and supremely articulate. 

The essays in this volume show, again, Mr. White's won- 
lerfully acute awareness of the good sights and sounds of 
ife — rural or metropolitan. The points of departure for 
wo of the essays are provided by his knowledge of the way 
n which a raccoon comes down a tree and by his knowledge 
>f the sites which pigeons choose for nesting in New York 
]ity. Every American who has listened sadly to the fare- 
veil whistle of a beloved passenger train making its last run 
}efore disappearing forever will understand the poignant 
•egret, and the misgivings about so-called progress, which 
Drompted "The Railroad." "The Years of Wonder," the last 
jssay in this volume, contains some of Mr. White's most 
mmorous writing and provides valuable autobiographical 
information about the 1920's and, especially, a journey 
which Mr. White made by steamboat to Alaska in 1923. 

Mr. White, whom I should like to call a transcendentalist 
(as well as a humanist) , has long admired the work of Thor- 
eau and has guided his life by Thoreau's words: "... I 
wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts 
of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, 
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.* 1 
The essays in this volume will help to point the way for those 
of us who really want to find the time to live. 

[28.] Collected Short Stories by Conrad Aiken. World Pub- 
lishing Company, 1960. 556 pages. $6.00 (hardback). 

Conrad Aiken has received many honors for his novels, 
poems, and short stories. His profound understanding 
of the forces that motivate human conduct and his technical 
mastery in the presentation of a narrative are everywhere 
apparent in this volume. Mr. Aiken's use of understatement 
and of a sure-handed and an unobtrusive irony enable him 
to represent with extraordinarily moving effect the pathos 
and the tragedy in human experience. 

At least two of the stories from this collection should 
appear in an anthology of the best short stories in American 
literature. "Mr. Arcularis" is a haunting rendition of the 
old theme about the discrepancy between a man's — Every- 
man's — aspirations in this life and his achievements. "Bow 
Down, Isaac!" leads one into the darker labyrinths of the 
mind in its study of a kind of religious fundamentalism that 
is partly sadism and partly masochism. 

One of the most important lessons that younger and less 
gifted artists than Conrad Aiken could learn from this vol- 
ume is that it is possible to write realistically and, yet, to 
write with good taste. 

Charles Dickens: His Tragedy and Triumph by Edgar 
Johnson. Simon and Schuster, 1952. Two volumes. 
1,158 pages. (This book is now out of print, but it is 
available in most libraries.) 

THE wise critical opinion of our age continues to hold the 
novels of Charles Dickens in high esteem (it is now al- 
most one hundred years since Dickens died). Edgar John- 
son's biography is destined to stand for a long time, I am 

sure, as the definitive life of this Victorian genius. Other 
reviewers have doubtless said that this biography is a model 
for scholarly accuracy and for critical insight; but, in grati- 
tude to Edgar Johnson — at the end of the first decade after 
the publication of this life — the praise needs to be repeated. 

Of the many problems which Mr. Johnson faces in these 
volumes, two might be mentioned as examples that prove his 
judiciousness. Some critics have wanted seriously to dis- 
parage Dickens' art by reciting a platitude about sentimen- 
tality. Mr. Johnson's examination of the accuracy of this 
charge (pages 322-324) is an illuminating discussion on 
sentimentality in literature. As many modern readers of 
Dickens at least vaguely know, a baffling episode in his later 
life concerns his love affair with the young actress Ellen 
Ternan. Mr. Johnson scorns the prudery, the sanctimo- 
niousness, the prurience, and the laziness of many other 
critics. He writes a searching and a moving account of 
Ellen Ternan 's part in Dickens' life. 

Dickens' novels deserve to be read and re-read. A famil- 
iarity with Edgar Johnson's biography will make the en- 
deavor infinitely more pleasurable and more enlightening. 

[29.] The Affair by C. P. Snow. Charles Scribner's Sons, 
1960. 374 pages. $1.65 (paperback). $4.50 (hard- 
back) . 

Reading The Affair should be a fascinating experience, 
even for those who have not read the earlier novels in 
the cycle to which this book belongs. Before the events of 
The Affair begin, Donald Howard, a promising young scien- 
tist on the faculty of Cambridge University, has been dis- 
charged because of alleged fraud in the presentation of the 
photographic evidence for some of his research. A few of 
his former colleagues who believe that there is a reasonable 
doubt about his guilt are able to convince the authorities 
that the investigation should be re-opened. Lewis Eliot, the 
narrator of the The Affair, is a highly successful advocate 
who is engaged to plead Howard's case in the fight for his 
academic life. 

Read on one level, this novel is an absorbing story of 
suspense. But it is much more than that, too. It represents 
a consideration of some profound moral questions about 
human rights, political and civil. C. P. Snow understands 
academic minds: the characterizations of the members of 
the Cambridge faculty are remarkably good. The satire is 
highly sophisticated. Mr. Snow's use of the author-partici- 
pant point of view enhances the enigmatic effect in the end- 
ing of this book. 


[30.] Toward World Order by Amry Vandenbosch and Wil- 
lard N. Hogan. McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1963. 389 
pages. $7.95 (hardback). 

Although this book could be used as a text, it was writ- 
ten primarily for the general reader. It offers a good 
historical background into the movement toward an inter- 

march 1963 


national world order based on law and organization. The 
authors correctly point out that government, whether na- 
tional or international, has the two tasks of preserving and 
of meeting the aspirations for freedom and justice. The 
question is asked: How do we move toward world order 
when the world community of technology possesses neither 
a world government nor the conditions which would allow 
one to be created? The answer, which is the purpose of the 
book, is to present an explanation of international organiza- 
tion in the context of the modern world political system. The 
units of the United Nations are described fully and in detail. 
This book gives one of the most astute and one of the clear- 
est descriptions of the present world organization which may 
be found in print. 

[31.] Neither War Nor Peace by Hugh Seton- Watson. Fred- 
erick A. Praeger, 1960. 504 pages. $7.50 (hardback) . 
$2.95 (revised paperback, 1963). 

THE author of this book uses the descriptive and analyti- 
cal approaches to the study of the political events which 
have developed during the last fourteen years. His results 
are highly illuminating. The two main themes in his story 
are: the expansion of totalitarianism and the growth of anti- 
European nationalism. His volume may roughly be divided 
into three main divisions: the Postwar World since 1945; 
the Political Forces of Revolution, Totalitarianism, and Im- 
perialism ; and the World Since Stalin. The book may aptly 
be described as a chronological history of the period since 
the Second World War, a massive reference work, and a 
penetrating analysis of the Cold War. In each one of these 
categories the author's material is readable, understandable, 
and authoritative. For one who desires a full and compre- 
hensive understanding of the factors which culminated in 
the Cold War and the major movements of a political and 
economic nature which have directly affected those move- 
ments this book is among the best. 

[32.] Soviet Union: Paradox and Change by Robert T. Holt 
and John E. Turner. Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 
1962. 256 pages. $4.50 (hardback) . $2.50 (paper- 
back) . 

Winston Churchill once characterized the Soviet Union 
as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." 
The authors of this book say, "Since that time we have 
learned much about the Soviet Union . . . what remains is 
not so much a riddle or a mystery or an enigma as an image 
of the Soviet Union as a land of paradox and change." The 
present volume is a contribution of the observations and 
studies of Soviet politics, economics, education, and technol- 
ogy with a high degree of penetration and depth not normal- 
ly found in a book of this size. The reader will not find an 
answer to the riddles of the Soviet Union, but he will under- 
stand more fully that the paradox of Russian society lies in 
its inevitable change. The discussion of politics is especially 
enlightening and informative. In the last chapter, for exam- 
ple, the authors give three attitudes of American thinking 
about the Soviet system: that Russia will eventually mellow 
and evolve into a liberal socialist democracy, that the Rus- 
sian people will eventually unite in rebellion against their 
Communist masters, and that there will be no change in the 

present dictatorship. Their conclusion is that increased edu 
cation, greater contacts with the western societies, and mor 
frequent power struggles within Russia will gradually cau& 
the leaders to loosen their hold on the people, but that n< 
great change can be expected immediately because of th< 
dedication of the Russian people to their system. 


[33.] The War-Fare State by Fred J. Cook. The MacMillai 
Company, 1962. 376 pages. $4.95 (hardback) . 

AN admirable summary and critique of this work will b( 
found in the Foreword by Bertrand Russell when h< 
said, "The War-Fare State is one of the most important anc 
also one of the most terrifying documents that I have evei 
read. His thesis is that the 'Military-industrial complex 
has become so powerful in the United States that it dom I 
inates the Government and is, at the same time, so insane 
that it is quite ready to advocate what is called a 'Preemp 
tive' war against the Soviet Union. The evidence which h( 
adduces is massive and unanswerable except by plain abuse.' 
The author maintains that the "Military Brass" has revoltec 
against a civilian Secretary and has collaborated with "Big ' 
Business" to whip up war-like passions among the people 
in order to get larger and larger appropriations from Con- 
gress in the name of "security." His so-called link between 
the military and business is shown by the fact that more than 
1,400 retired officers above the rank of major were em- 
ployed by the top one hundred companies receiving con- 
tracts from the government. President Eisenhower, in his 
"Farewell Address" to the nation, is quoted, "We must guard 
against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether 
sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.'' 
This book is provocative, frightening, and spine-tingling. It 
should be read and pondered by all serious students of mod 
em public affairs. 

[34.] Politics in Africa: Prospects South of the Sahara by 
Herbert J. Spiro. Prentice-Hall, 1962. 183 pages 
$1.95 (paperback). $3.95 (hardback). 

American ideas about Africa, primarily myths, were given 
by missionaries, novelists, and big game hunters, and 
we were not prepared for the political importance of the 
newly emerging African nations. In the social field studies 
have been made by anthropologists, historians, and political 
scientists. This book is by a political scientist. In the politi- ; 
cal field he points out that Africa now has about one-fourth 
of all the members of the United Nations, that Africa almost 
became a political vacuum between East and West, and that 
African nationalism is a force which must be considered by 
Westerners. This book is a reasoned and reasonable study 
of the politics of the newly created nations in the "Black 
Belt" of that continent. The author makes an honest appeal 
to Americans not to judge these nations on our scale of 
political values, but that we use restraint in our criticism of 
or advice to the leaders of the new states. He maintains, 
"The new African states south of the Sahara MAY make a 
positive contribution to international politics. But they are 
unlikely to do so if the United States treats them like so 
many 'peanut republics.' " He strongly urges a sympathetic 
understanding of the people as they attempt to work out 
their own destiny.

Class of 1915 

a cordial invitation to attend a recep- 
tion on Saturday, June 1, 1963, from 
2:30 to 4:30 P. M., in Larison Hall 
Living Room.

We officiated at the funeral of J. Devon 
,Cober, brother of VERA COBER ROCKWELL 
I'll, on December 20. He had been a patient 
-at the Veterans Administration Hospital where 
we spent many visits at his bedside. 

DOT SCHNURE will visit Hawaii in Jan- 
uary. Their barn burned down recently and 
I gave them a bad scare. The wind was in 
the right direction fortunately and the house 
was saved. 

I the only classmates to date (Dec. 22) to 
I come across with any greetings. Tilt's boy, 
: JOHN '52, is now a Ph.D. He teaches at 
Bucknell. That makes two Ph.D.'s out of the 
j old Tilton-Oesterle "combo." Our boy has 
\ a similar degree and teaches at Purdue. 

LESLIE McKEAGUE '13, will not be vis- 
iting St. Pete this year. His trip abroad prob- 
ably exhausted his luxury budget. 

We see "CHICK" FLORIN '09 occasionally. 
I wonder if Bucknellians know about his 
Boxer and how the valiant pooch saved his 
life when the Florins faced a robber? The 
story got a whale of publicity. 

We hope to have the EARLES of Sarasota 
with us on Christmas. It is wonderful to 
have them near at hand. 

LOU EATON '20 of Venice, Fla., sent a 
nice card on which he lamented his inability 
to be at our last alumni gathering. About 
26 of us showed up for that and enjoyed Leo 
and Vera Rockwell's recital of their 50th re- 
union. They never fail to come up with some- 
thing very interesting. HAINES '13, a minis- 
terial of our generation, was on hand.

A nice note at Christmas came in our card 
from JEANETTE OWENS Burnet. After be- 
ing ill for six years and in a coma for nine 
months, Tom died last winter. She has since 
married their old friend of 39 years, and they 
are very happy. They enjoy the same things, 
mostly travel. Last summer they drove to the 
west coast. They visited Wisconsin Dells, 
Bad Lands, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone Park, 
and the Seattle World's Fair. Victoria, B. C. 
they found enchanting and enjoyed San Fran- 
cisco, Calif. They spent three days in Los 
Angeles, Calif., and another at the Grand 
Canyon. They then went to Albuquerque, N. 
M., and stopped at their home in Florida for 


R. Henry Coleman '29 has been elected 
president and general manager and a director of 
Remington Arms Company, Inc., by the board 
of directors. 

Formerly vice president and assistant gen- 
eral manager of Remington, Mr. Coleman joined 
the advertising department of E. I. du Pont de 
Nemours and Company in Wilmington, Del., 
shortly after graduation in 1929. After serving 
as advertising manager for various Du Pont ex- 
hibits at the Texas Centennial Exposition in Dal- 
las in 1936. 

In 1937, he was transferred to the Reming- 
ton Arms Company, Inc., as advertising manag- 
er. He was later made director of promotion and, in 1949, was named 
director of sales. He was elected vice president in 1951 and vice president 
and assistant general manager in 1954. 

Mr. Coleman is a director of Remington Arms of Canada Ltd. ; Cartu- 
chos Deportivos de Mexico; and the Wildlife Management Institute. He is 
a member of the Advisory Board of the American Hardware Manufacturers' 

Bucknell is proud to have him as a member of the Board of Trustees. 
On the board he is currently a member of the finance committee and is chair- 
man of the special committee for development. During the recently complet- 
ed Dual Dvelopment campaign he served his Alma Mater as chairman of the 
special gifts committee. He has also been a director of the Bucknell Alumni 
Club of Connecticut. 

Mr. Coleman is the son of the beloved Dr. William H. Coleman, Vice 
President and Dean Emeritus of Bucknell, and the late Edna Wilcox Coleman. 
He is married to the former Esther Keim '30. They have two sons, 
Rowland Henry, Jr., and William Henry II, and four grandchildren. 

ten days before going to their summer house 
on Long Beach Island, N. J. Since most of 
their families (combined) live around the 
Philadelphia area, they had plenty of com- 
pany all summer. Before coming south, they 
flew to Bermuda for five days and spent an- 
other five days touring New England to see 
the fall foliage. Jeannette, accept our very 
best wishes for a happy future. Be sure to 
come back to reunions. 

CHARLIE SIPLEY '22 attended the Muh- 
lenburg game on October 27 and had a re- 
union at the same time with a group of men 
from the Old Bucknell Ambulance Corps. 
TOMMY MANGAN '21 was among them. 
Many of them had not seen each other since 
1919. Charlie spent Thanksgiving with his 
sister, Margaret, and expects her to spend the 
winter with him. He is still fishing and teach- 

BERTHA SMITH Crank '23 says she is fine 
and still working. She had a trip to Italy 
this year. 

ETHEL WARD has now retired and is liv- 
ing in Lewisburg. She entertained at a tea 
this fall. 

BEULAH HUMMELL Fero I'M lives in 
Lewisburg now since Dave has retired. They 
have two grandchildren, Douglas (21 months) 
and Darcia Ann (six weeks) at this time. 
Beulah says she helps by baby sitting at times. 
She and Dave are going to Texas this winter 
for a visit with Dave's sister. 

FAY SCHOCH Ford 18 writes from Flori- 
da where they moved a little over a year ago 
for retirement. They bought the lots some 
time ago and when ready to retire, they built 
the house. Husband John had a coronary 
shortly after they moved and was ill for 
months. Then on October 31, 1962, he had 
another one and passed away. Fay would like 
to move back to her old home town, Hunting- 
don, but she wants to stay in Largo, Fla., until 
June when son David finishes junior college. 
Daughter Elsie was married last June and 
lives in New York City. 

MIRIAM BRIDGE Rudin '19 reports that 
she is coining along fine. She has her health 
back and we'll get together soon. She loves 

surprised me with a telephone call the other 
night. She and her husband, who has just 
retired from the faculty of State College, have 
moved to Wyndmoore, which is very close 
to us. Their only son and his family are 
located in Plymouth Township and they want- 
ed to be near them. I expect to see her as 
soon as she returns from a visit to her home 
town, Monessen. She expects to see Kash 
Lehrmann while there. 

These notes were gathered from Christmas 
cards and while not all from our class I'm 
sure you'll remember them and enjoy hearing 
about them. Wish I had more news from 
the Class of '17.

■•" June Reunion — 1963 

Reunion time is almost here — remember the 
dates are May 31, June 1, and 2, 1963 — 
which means about two months to go — so 
start planning, and get your reservations in 

With all of the cold and snow that we have 
been having, it is pleasant to think of some 
pleasant warm weather activities. 

A letter from DOROTHY McCLINTIC John- 
son, tells of the death of her mother in early 
October. Mrs. McClintic, who had lived with 
Dorothy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for a num- 
ber of years, was 92. Our sympathy goes to 

SALLY PARK Titterington, of the Class of 
1917, writes that she has changed her address 
— moved into an apartment at 312 N. San An- 
tonio, Apt. 3, Ontario, Calif. 

Also from California, DAGMAR JAMES 
Macfarlane, writes that she is still busy at her 
job of laboratory technician. She lives at 112 
Knoll Circle, South San Francisco, Calif. Her 
daughter, Barbara, and granddaughter live 
just across the street from her, while her son, 
with six sons and a daughter, lives in Klamath 
Falls, Oreg. 

Hope to see many of you at our 45th re- 
union. Should be fun!

Christmas greetings came from several class- 
mates but no news! Why? 

ELTON P. RICHARDS, SR.. and wife LIL- 
wood, Fla., visited their son, Rev. Elton P. 
Richards, Jr., pastor of the Lutheran Church 
of Levittown over Christmas. 

I was with my family JIM '49, and LARICE 
BURTT '50, and son, Jami, who live near 
Elton, Jr., and so the families spent some very 
pleasant reminiscing hours together as well as 
attending the Christmas Eve family service 
conducted by Rev. Elton. 

Elton and Lillian are enjoying Florida and 
spent the past summer touring Europe. 

A belated Happy New Year.

among others, by the Nanticoke State General 
Hospital with a scroll and service pin. 

The holidays are over and gone — extra fun 
with the grandchildren so we must get down 
to regular living again. I was glad to hear 
from ANNE ALTHOUSE Fischer of Seattle,

■•" June Reunion — 1963 

Reunion time coming up indeed! And if 
you think it's not making a difference in any- 
one's plans, hear this: RUTH REUHL, re- 
cently retired from the position of private 
secretary to the secretary of the Department 
of Highways, State of Washington, had been 
"going around in circles," to quote her, trying 
to decide where to live. She very much 
wanted to spend the winter in Florida to see 
how she liked it there but did not want to 
leave her house in Olympia, Wash., unoc- 
cupied so long, since she was "definitely plan- 
ning to attend our class reunion in June." 
Dr. ANNE HOROSCHAK Nahrgang hopes 
to be among those present. Such reports 
coming in makes one anxious for time to fly. 
(Yes even when you're about to celebrate 
your 40th.) Had you been present at our 
first planning session several months ago and 
shared the enthusiasm there, you would know 
for sure that you will be expected, you will 
be wanted, you will be greeted by those of us 
who are a little closer to the Campus than 
many of you. So plan now to make our plans

Sorry I left you down in the last issue but' I 
our newest grandson arrived six weeks before! 
he was expected, upsetting many well-laid* 
plans! He arrived on Bill's birthday, Octo- 1 
ber 20, so his name is Stephen Thompson 1 
Boone, first child of our youngest. Since l| 
am on the subject of Thompsons I will tell 
you a little about ourselves. We live on at 
200 acre farm in York County, just off the 
Mason-Dixon line, and we dearly love it. Our 
big oak tree and boxwoods were a feature ar-j 
tide in a York paper last summer, both be- 1 
cause of beauty and age. The only animals 
we have are sheep and it will soon be lambing 
time ! Bill is still interested in the Reserves ; 
even though he was retired two years ago as i 
Brigadier General— PARNG— "Ret" he is also 
active in VFW and Legion. He is master of 
a local grange and I am secretary, and we 
are both active in our church. Our oldest

University and is married to a medical student 

Had a nice Christmas card from EDYTHE 
REYNOLDS Estelow bringing me up to date 
on her. She and her "Dick" had a "most in- 
teresting trip entirely by train and boat to the 
northwest, Seattle, and the World's Fair. 
Thence we traveled by boat to Alaska and 
made a side trip up into the Yukon. We re- 
turned by way of Banff and Lake Louise." 
It sounds wonderful to me.

June Reunion — 1963 

Reunion — May 31, June 1, and 2. Plan to 
be with us then. I won't remind you of the 
years, but do come back and show us all how 
wonderfully you have stood up under them. 
We'll be looking for you at Reunion. 

ELIZABETH ROYER Hughes responded to 
.my plea for news, by writing me a terrific let- 
ter. She was inspired by the article on MAR- 
GARET SCHUYLER Augustine '30. Elizabeth 
tells me that instead of going into teaching 
as planned, she was trained by Bell Telephone 
of New Jersey to do traffic engineering and 
worked for seven years, five after she was 
married. Her husband is an appraisal engi- 
neer for Bell. Because of her experience, she 
became interested in local government, and 
after helping form the League of Women 
Voters in her town, became active in studying 
town planning, so that she was appointed the 
first woman member of the Bloomfield Plan- 
ning Board in 1960. She has three brilliant 
children: Careen, a Phi Beta Kappa gradu- 
ate from Vassar, now taking her M.A. at Co- 
lumbia while teaching; Paul, a junior at Con- 
necticut Wesleyan University, who achieved a 
perfect score in College Board Chemistry; 
and Keith, a freshman at Harvard, planning to 
study architecture who, along with other hon- 
ors, had a score in Spanish high enough to 
get credit in languages required for a Har- 
vard degree. All three children received in- 
numerable high school honors. She says, "You 
can see my husband and I feel Bucknell and 
Penn State ('25 is his class) gave us a fine 
foundation for our family. We would like our 
former professors and friends to know this." 
Recently she has lunched with DOT WOL- 
VERTON Devereaux and has alreadv been 
contacted about reunion by Esther Bucker. 

Occasionally I talk to ISABEL WIESER 
Hensinger on the 'phone about a Bucknell 
affair and find she is substituting quite reg- 
ularly. Do forgive me Isabel for not having 
the other data in. I called you this morning, 
for I have hunted high and low for the notes. 
Isabel had given me some news on herself and 
a couple of other classmates. 


On December 21, 1962. Charles W. Kalp

committee for the Philadelphia Bucknell Alum- 
ni Club on January 6. ALICE ROBERTS '24. 
JAN '54 and JIM PANGBURN '54, LES 
LIGHTON '20 and BOB TAYLOR "48 were 
here. BOB FITZSIMMONS '58 and his wife 
couldn't make it at the last minute, because 
Bob is so busy with his television work as 
sports reporter. He had to meet someone 
at the airport. Watch for his name on the 
T. V. It was on, the night before our meeting. 
The Philadelphia gang are such a grand 
group. The more you go to your local alum- 
ni functions, the more people you get to know. 
Result — you have a better time. Plan it as 
an opportunity to renew old acquaintances 
and make new friends. Enough's enough — 
be rattling off some lines next time. Best 
wishes to all. Keep in mind June 1.

Association in recognilion of his contributions 
to the organization and for promoting the 
newspaper boy. He helped organize the Penn- 
sylvania Newspaper Publishers Association 
Newspaperboy Award. Paul also received an 
award for mail subscription promotion at the 
same conference. Grit's distribution system by 
newspaper boys is unique in the publishing 
field and a great deal of the credit for the 
vast delivery system is due to Paul's organiz- 
ing ability.

Our sympathy is extended to the Hill family. 

Again — June, 1965, is our reunion year. Are

and dream a few dreams of "yesteryear?" 

Bye now — please write me about YOU!

In September. 1962. WILLIAM P. BOGAI

director of McNeil Laboratories, division i 
Johnson & Johnson, Ft. Washington. He wi 
continue his participation as a speaker at ii 
ternational scientific meetings by attendin 
the Third International Symposium of Chen 
otherapy to be held in Stuttgart, Germany, i

heard from Bill in November he was heat 
ing for Europe to visit hospitals in Belgiui 
and the Rhineland then going on to a meetin 
in Milan. The Bogars still reside on Glei 
bardie Road, Wayne. 

BILL DANDO lives at 640 Bridle Rd., Glei 
side. He attended the Delaware game an 
says he and CROSS SMITH '31 tried to roc 
Bucknell into the MAC championship. Be 
ter luck next year. Bill manages to get t 
the Monday Luncheon meetings in Philly an 
"swans lies" with AL FENSTERMACHE1

Bill had sent more personal news so I coul 
pass it on but I guess he may be saving thi 
for our reunion in '64.

where he is better known as Rev. Willian 
Hallbauer, S. T. M., pastor of the Presbytel 
rian Church in Trinidad. He is there on \ 
four-year appointment as an associate mission!) 
ary in the field of evangelism to the Islam, 
of Trinidad under the World Mission BoarcJ 
of the United Church of Canada with office; 
in Toronto, Canada. His pastoral charge en\ 
compasses eleven mission stations within a ra 
dius of twenty-five miles over roads that, all 
though passable, are narrow and exceedingh 
winding. "Ginger" and his wife find their 
new life very challenging. He says Trinidad 
is a land of contrasts between the very old} 
and the very new as they achieved their in] 
dependence on August 31, 1962. The peopltl 
for the most part are eager to learn and get'i 
ahead. To cite an example of how busy the 
Hallbauers have been I'll cite the first day 
they spent in Trinidad: Wakened at 5:00 
A. M. to prepare for services, one at Salazar 
Trace at 7:00 A. M., one at Guapo at 8:15 
A. M., one at Point Fortin at 9:30 A. M., 
and another at Cap de Ville at 11:00 A. M. 
Then that afternoon the Elders took them to 
Cedros at the southern end of the island. Just, 
imagine within 36 hours of leaving Idlewild 
Airport they had traveled the entire length 
of Trinidad from Port of Spain where they 
arrived to Cedros. This life in the tropic will, 


I am sure, prove most rewarding and I hope 

i Ginger" will let us hear from him often.

mrill be somewhere in the United States after 

hat date — we hope. Three of Rufuse's brides- 
maids will be Bucknellians: JANET MILLER, 
iall of '65, and PETE WILKINSON '62 and 
IDICK GOLDMAN '64 will be in the bridal 
party too. I am sure that with all of their 
Bucknell friends and ours the reception im- 
mediately following the marriage ceremony 
will have some of the aspects of an alumni 
party. I remember our wedding back in June 
'36 was like that, as our attendants were Buck- 
nellians too. Perhaps our son, Robert, a ju- 
nior in high school may decide to keep this a 
Bucknell family.

Bonfils Auditorium in Denver, Colo., before 
Christmas. His picture appeared in the Den-

and agree that it was a magnificently imagin-

in various phases of its preparation. 

We are delighted to urge all Bucknellians 
living near New York to watch for the exhibit 
of BOBBIE DUANE Matthew's paintings at 
the Bodley Galleries on East 60th St., New

Lt. Col. RAYMOND O. MANKER retired 
from active federal service in colorful cere- 
monies at Edgewood Arsenal, Md., in Sep- 
tember. Ray entered military service in 1941. 
has served in Australia, New Guinea, the 
Philippines, Korea, and many stateside posts. 
At the time of his retirement he was com- 
manding officer of the U. S. Army Technical 
Escort Unit. Although retiring from military 
service, Ray is getting ready for another ca- 
reer and is attending Loyola College in Bal- 
timore, Md., to earn his master's degree in

It's been a long time since we have had any 
word from Mrs. Paul T. Kosiak (ELSA BUT- 
TERWORTH) but this will bring you up to 
date. Officially, she is a homemaker with two 
children, (Peter, 14, and Maria, 10), to look 
after, but her community activities evidently 
fill in all of her spare time. In recent years 
she has held offices in the United Services 
Federation, Buck's County Community Serv- 
ices, Family Service Association, Village Im- 
provement Association, Y. W. C. A., Bucks 
County Mental Health Society, Bucks Sym- 
phony Society, Doylestown Presbyterian 
Church and has even performed in the film, 
"Decision at Laurel Falls," produced by the 
Department of the Interior to promote public 
interest in local government. Her husband, 
Paul T. Koziak, is senior representative for 
educational services and data processing for 
science research association of Chicago and 
commutes to his office in Washington, D. C.

One of my good resolutions for 1963 is to 
write Bucknell ALUMNUS columns brimful 
of news, and to put them in the mail well 
before the deadline, but I cannot do it with- 
out YOUR help! 


Welcome cards and letters during the holi- 
days brought the news of two new babies: 
Mark Edward Davis who arrived last Novem- 
ber 26 at the home of John and JANE COL- 
TERYAHN Davis to join 3 brothers; and 
Pete Heaney who will reside with father 
HEANEY '44 in New Jersey. I imagine that 
they will be among the last of our class 
babies, and the terrible truth is that soon 
we will begin listing grandchildren. 

GERRY PEPPERMAN Dietz has the soul 
of a good reporter for she sent me news of her 
family and a wonderful trip she took to the 
west coast via several stops to visit Bucknel- 
lians. I quote: "I left Philly on a jet on Sun- 
day afternoon, arrived in Detroit and stayed 
with MARGIE OSBORNE Henry until Tues- 
day afternoon. Monday morning we had 
coffee with RUTH BRADEN McNamee who 
lives about three miles from Oz. Met her Jeff, 
a charming, stocky, poised 11 year old who 
was a joy, and then gabbed a mile a minute. 
Ruthie said they had been to Seattle, Wash., 
this summer as well as a flying trip to Italy 
and Switzerland. And I thought I was doing 
something to get to California! She looked 
grand and is apparently mixed up in as many 
activities as she was in college. Tuesday 
JEAN PEARCE Cromwell came for lunch 
and we called JEANNE ROCKWELL Noonan 
who lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. She met us 
at the airport and over a horribly fattening 
dessert and coffee we tried to catch up on 
20 years. She looks wonderful, too; in fact 
we all complimented ourselves on not looking 
like we had been out of school 20 years. Who 
are we kidding?" Thanks, Gerry. 

'45 and their four children spent a pleasant 
old-fashioned Christmas at the country home 
of his parents in Walpack Center, N. J. They 
ice skated, tramped through the snowy woods, 
and cut their own Christmas tree. 

'43 are moving soon to Kansas City, Mo., 
where Doctor Bob is to open a new office for 
his company. He is now a partner in the 
group of psychological consultants to business 
management. Last summer they enjoyed a 
two-week camping trip to California with 
their daughters— Debbie (12) and Allyson 
(10). Much closer to home, they've hiked the 
Lincoln Trail from Springfield to New Salem 
in Illinois and "walked where Lincoln 

BOB WHITEHEAD and his wife, the form- 
er CAROL SPROUL '44, drove to Montreal, 
Canada, this fall where they saw daughter 
Ann off to Europe with a group of AFS stu- 
dents. She will spend part of her senior 
year in a high school in Denmark, and on her 
return plans to enter Bucknell in the fall. In- 
cidentally, I heard that 40% of the new Buck- 
nell class has overseas experience of some 
kind; either travel, education, or residence. 
That's an amazing statistic and how much 
more sophisticated they must be than we 
were when torn from hearth and home in 

The Norman Medal, oldest and most dis- 
tinguished of American Society of Civil En- 
gineering awards, has been received by WIL- 
LIAM McGUIRE for his joint authorship 
(with Dr. Gordon P. Fisher, Associate Dean 
of Engineering at Cornell University) of a 
paper on Containment Studies for an Atomic 
Power Plant. Bill is currently on sabbatical 
leave from Cornell University where he serves 
as professor of civil engineering, to comnlete 
work on a new textbook, Design ol Metal 
Structures, he is writing with Dr. Fisher and 
Prof. Winter of Cornell. 

I have no personal news to include excep 
that we seven had a fine holiday togethe 
here at home. Craig had 'phoned the Foreigi 
Policy Bureau to ask for several foreign stu 
dents to share it with us, and he found tha 
there were none left. All of the foreign stu 
dents in the five Pittsburgh colleges wer* 
"spoken for" far in advance. People ar 
certainly making individual efforts to shov 
the real side of our country to the world, 
will see you in the next issue, and hope tha 
its publication finds some of the problems oi 
this globe to be solved.

It would be wise to start this with an apolo- 
gy to the other class reporters who might 
think I'm encroaching, but when Christmas

an original '44-er just because he graduated 
with a post-war class.

To all those who wrote wonderful Holiday

ite recipes. Her nut tea loaf looked very 
good. Reminds us that the Class of 1950 in-

NANCY GEORGE Arthur writes of the 
birth of John Robert, III, on September 16 
and of three-year-old Susan. 

In the most clever announcement I've re- 
ceived EMILIE SHERMAN Sanborn tells of 
their newest offshoot, Douglas James, born 
November 1, 1962 — "In keeping with our 
planned objective of periodic expansion the 
Sanborn Family Nursery is delighted to an- 
nounce the arrival of our newest offshoot. Now 
direct from our Dayton growers comes this 
hardy young twig off the old branch. Only 
after nine months of growth in a strictly con- 
trolled environment do we feel that our youth- 
ful scion is ready for public exhibition. This 
healthy young bud blooms incessantly and 
does best in a sunny, well-drained location. 
Easily grown, it is guaranteed to increase in 
size rapidly, thrive for generations and be- 
come more handsome each year. Our supply 
is definitely limited!"

At Bucknell Dave majored in biology and 
distinguished himself by receiving numerous 
honors including membership in Phi Beta Kappa. 
Upon graduation he was the first Bucknellian to 
J"„ receive a Fulbright Scholarship. Following a 
year of study in England, he was granted a fel- 
"**'' t^ * lowship at Columbia, and in 1956 he received 

from this institution his master's degree. 

During the International Geophysical Year, 
he crossed the Atlantic Ocean sixteen times at various latitudes and visited 
ports in Europe, Africa and South America. Throughout this period he 
collected data on the distribution of chemicals in the sea, and it has become 
the basis for his doctorate thesis, which he is currently preparing for sub- 
mission to Yale University. 

He has participated in programs for research in the Mediterranean Sea 
and in the Indian Ocean. It was during the Indian Ocean expedition that 
he, in the company of Japanese and Australian scientists, spent two weeks 
on a Russian research vessel. According to Dave, his relationship with the 
youthful Russian scientists (which included as many women as men) was 
harmonious, and the results of his analysis of the chemistry of the sea water 
to determine the oxygen and inorganic phosphate content compared with 
those of the Russians. The numerous experiments undertaken by both parties 
showed that the data collected was reliable and that consistent limits could 
be established despite which country performed the experiment. 

As this is written, Dave is in the Linked States, but there is a good 
possibility he will be leaving soon for another extended oceanographic cruise 
on a Russian ship, and another adventure to distant places. In a recent 
letter to the Alumni Office he says, "All of this is a far cry from my days 
at Bucknell, yet it is because of the background which I acquired there that 
I have been able to enjoy such stimulating professional experience."

June Reunion — 1963 

And another new year is upon us! Incon- 
ceivable as it seems to me, and to most all of 
us I'm sure, our fifth reunion is coming up in 
June. It looks as though we are going to 
have to consider ourselves members of that 
group known as "old grads!" Far from t he 
veritable "fading away" of old everythings, 
however, the spunky Class of '58 is still very 
much on the go, as the following news briefs 
will show. And despite the fact that we are 
now all mature, responsible individuals, it 
doesn't really seem so long ago that we were 
staging those beer riots of our freshman year! 

RUTH (HEIDEMANN) Drozin and hus- 
band. Vadim (associate professor of physics 
at Bucknell) have two children: Kathy 
(Katherine Mary), born October 25, 1960; 
and Andy (George Andrew), born May 9, 
1962. Ruth has been at the books again, 
and expects to have her M.S. degree this 
February, 1963. The Drozins live at 310 S. 
7th St., Lewisburg. 

JOHN KOSOLOSKI was awarded the doc- 
tor's degree in education by Penn State Uni- 
versity in 1962. He is now a coordinator in 
earth and space science with the State Depart- 
ment of Public Instruction for Pennsylvania. 


A recent letter from IRA PODNOS in- 
forms us of his whereabouts (2231 East 19th 
St., Brooklyn 29, N. Y.). Ira's news is not 
all, as he put it, "pleasant", but he wants his 
Bucknell friends to know of his current stat- 
us. In September, 1962, Ira's marriage was 
annulled in New York. In the same month 
he resigned as instructor in English al Lady- 
cliff College. He has accepted a position 
with the Underwood-Olivetti Corporation in 
New York City which he feels holds great 

A surprise 'phone call from VIC ALLISON 
recently informed us that he is now assistant 
minister of pastoral services at the First Con- 
gregational Church of Braintree, Mass. Vic 
and his wife, the former Patricia Sundberg 
(currently a dietician at the New England 
Baptist Hospital in Boston), live at 11 Beverly 
Court, Braintree, Mass. Vic tells us that 
BOB HARDER '59, also lives in Braintree at 
365 Tremont St., and works for Armstrong 

SHIRLEY COOK Hatch sends news that 
she and her husband. Navy folks, now live 
in Subic Bay, Philippines. Sounds like quite 
a good life, too, for Shirley has herself a full 
time maid — leaving her free to pursue much 
golf and bridge. Address: Capt. and Mrs 
W. W. Hatch. Mar. Bbs., Navy No. 3002, 
F. P. 0., San Francisco, Calif.

Dr., Pittsburgh 37. JOAN (CARBERRY) 
and HOWIE SIPLER (with Jeff and Deborah 
Joan), 204 Queen Drive, West Chester 14. 

Births: To NANCY (BRAYMAN) and 
PHIL KREIS '56, a son, George Phillip, on 
August 13, 1962. To MAG (WIDMEIER) 
and John Borden, a daughter, Andrea Hill, 
on October 3, 1962. To KITTY (SEILER) 
and Ken Black, a second daughter, Laura 
Kay, on September 28, 1962. And taking a 
bit of editorial license to usurp an extra line 
—to FAITH (BONSALL) and Dick Rich- 
ards, a daughter, Sara Binford, on December 
7, 1962. So much for the 1962 income tax 
deductions — the ones we know about — any- 
body holding out? Be sure to let us know of 
any others we might have missed — and any 
and all news.

SANDY WOOD and Ronald L. Heinemann 
were married September 15, 1962, and are

Just in time for this issue, I received a let- 
ter from JANE RODGERS. Jane transferred 
to Penn State to complete her education. Cur- 
rently, she is soaking up the sunshine while 
attending graduate school at the University of 
Southern California on a government scholar- 
ship. She will receive a M.Ed, in teaching

As of January 1, 1963, all but 100 of the 
490 members of the Class of 1962 who grad- 
uated in June and August had supplied Alum- 
ni Headquarters with correct mailing address- 
es and all but 169 had supplied occupational 
information for their permanent record file in 
the Alumni Office. 

A tally of the replies received shows the 
following activities of our class: 120 — em- 
ployed (except teachers) ; 68 — employed as 
teachers; 18 — in law school; 9 — in medical 
school ; 60 — in other graduate schools ; 29 — 
in military service; 17 — unemployed (some 
are awaiting military induction) ; 69 — no in- 
formation supplied; 100 — no reply received. 

By ibis time, no doubt, an additional group 
has entered military service. 

If you are not receiving your Bucknell mail 
at your preferred mailing address, please drop 
a post card to Alumni Headquarters at Lewis- 
burg giving your current mailing address, and 
every time you move please notify Alumni 
Headquarters, in advance if possible. Alumni 
still using their parent's home address, but 
actually working away from home, are urged 
lo change their addresses to the location of 
the city where they are employed so that 
University mail, notices of club meetings, and 
reunion information will reach them promptly. 


Occasionally, Alumni — generally non-graduates — wonder about their 
status as to membership in The General Alumni Association of Bucknell 
University. To clear up this question, let us quote from the Constitution 
and By-Laws, as follows: 

"Article III, Section 1 — Every person to whom a degree shall have 
been awarded by Bucknell University and every person who shall 
have matriculated and ceased to be a student at Bucknell University 
shall be deemed to be a member of this Association." 

"Article III, Section 3 — Members of the faculty and administration 
of the University who are not members of the Association by virtue 
of the provisions of Section 1 of this article shall be deemed asso- 
ciate members of the Association." 

There are, of course, no annual dues required for membership in The 
General Alumni Association of Bucknell University. The services performed 
by The General Alumni Association and the Alumni Headquarters Office 
on the campus are provided through the generosity of the Bucknellians and 
friends who contribute to the Bucknell Alumni Annual-Giving Fund.

SOME of the interesting Christmas cards received at the Alumni Office this year 
were greetings with pictures of children of Bucknellians. Unfortunately, some 
of the pictures were not clear, or were color prints, and could not be reproduced 
for inclusion in this special section of pictures of children of Alumni. Because 
many of the proud parents asked that classmates write to them, we have included 
address information in the captions.

THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS is published in January, March, May,

Bucknell provides many special services for 
its student body and one of the most important is 

Each student is assigned a faculty adviser who 
assists him in working out a program of study 
and who provides advice and counseling in 
connection with academic problems. 

Also, carefully selected upper-class students 
are assigned as counselors in the dormitories 
and residence halls. They offer assistance in 
orienting students to campus life, referring students 
with academic or social difficulties to the proper 
staff member, and helping with minor problems 
incurred by individual students. 

Working closely with the upper-class counselors 
are staff members of the offices of the Dean of 
Women and Dean of Men. These staff members 
are available for assistance with problems of 
any nature whether concerned with personal matters, 
student government, or extra curricular activities. 

Consultation and testing are available at the 
University Counseling Service. Here assistance 
is given in selecting a major field of study, in 
choosing a vocation, and in improving study and 
reading skills. Special attention is given to students 
who have emotional or social problems. 

Specialized counseling is provided foreign 
students. The Christian Association assists these 
students in such matters as immigration regulations, 
work, and vacation arrangements.

"UCKNELL'S spring sports teams are already well into 
their season, but Bison fans are still talking about some 
of the outstanding performances turned in this winter by 
the basketball, swimming, and wrestling teams. 


Heading the list of top achievements was the victory 
by Bob Latour's swimming team in the Middle Atlantic 
Conference Championships. Figured to fight down to the 
wire with defending champion West Chester. Bucknell 
rolled up a record total of 67 1 /; points on the first day of 
the meet, and went on to win by a wide margin. 

The Bisons had both quality and quantity, winning 
six individual titles and one relay crown and qualifying at 
least two men for the finals in every event. 

Heading the list of record breaking performances by 
Bucknell swimmers were Jim Smigie's victories in the 100 
and 200-yard butterfly events, Enos Fry's victory in the 
50-yard freestyle and tie for first in the 100-yard freestyle, 
and the tremendous effort of Smigie, Fry, Jack Fleming 
and Bruce Dove in the 400-yard freestyle relay. 

Smigie set meet records of 2:04.0 and :54.9 in the but- 
terfly races. Fry won the 50-yard freestyle in :22.2 and 
lied with Lehigh's Jeff Scholz in :50.9 in the other sprint, 
and the freestyle relay team cracked all existing conference 
and school records with a runaway victory in 3:22.2. 

Bucknell's other winners in the meet were John Wein- 
mann who set a pool record of 2:15.5 in the 200-yard in- 
dividual medlev and Tom Boak in the 100-yard breaststroke. 

Other top point winners were Jack Fleming who placed i 
the 50, 200 and 500-yard freestyle. Dove, who qualified i 
the 50 and 100-yard freestyle, Robin Harris in the 200-yar 
butterfly and 500-yard freestyle, Weinmann and Clint Cor 
diet in the 100 and 200-yard backstroke, Kent Smith in th

medley. Bill Brady and Bob Nadal in the 200-yard free

The freshmen also turned in some outstanding marks 
winning both relays and the 200-yard freestyle in the MA(

Larzelere, Jack Dorr and Dick Sells was clocked in 3:27.5 
and the medley relay unit of Al Hanford, Phil Reynolds 
Thimme and Larzelere finished in 3:57.7. Thimme won th 
200-yard freestyle in the school record time of 1:54.8.

200-yard butterfly in the Eastern Championships and liat 
a qualifying time of 2:04.5. He also did :54.8 in th' 
100-yard butterfly, but failed to qualify for the final.

'iss. Walt Narcum, Bruce Carson and Tom Mitchell. 

'•pring Sports 

This spring the tennis and golf teams are short on ex- 
erience, but the baseball and track squads have more 
ixperienced personnel than they have had in recent years, 
loach Rod Oberlin's baseball team is bolstered by nine 
:ttermen, including the four pitchers who saw almost all 
f the action a year ago, Joe Frith, Joe Elliott, Dick Kiehn 
!nd Steve Weems. 

Senior Gary Heck will handle almost all of the catching 
bad and three lettermen are in the infield. Captain Sam 
jJeisner at second base and juniors Bill Headley at first 
;ase and John Minsker at shortstop. The top contenders 
(or the third base post are sophomore Fred Grecco and 
unior Matt McCloskey. 

Art Covey is the only letterman in the outfield, but 
)berlin expects help from senior Dick Tyrell, junior Jerry 
Gallagher and sophomores Tom Clark and Wayne Pero. 

The diamond squad faces another tough schedule in- 
luding games with Penn State. Delaware, Syracuse. Colgate, 
lutgers. Temple. Lafayette and Gettysburg. 

Heading the list of eight lettermen on the track squad 
re co-captains Buzzy Holmes and Jeff Martin. Holmes 

will team with two other veterans. Bob Mackenzie and 
Jim Mueller, to give the Bisons better than average strength 
in the sprints, and Martin is the top distance runner on 
the squad. 

The other returning lettermen are junior Tom Harris 
in the pole vault and broad jump, senior Barry Johnson 
in the high jump and high hurdles, senior Ray Keeney in 
the pole vault and low hurdles, and senior Bob Risacher 
in the hurdles and broad jump. Three of the top soph 
prospects on Bus Blum's squad are Don Lieb in the high 
jump. Don Horning in the 440 and Joe Fleming in the 
pole vault. 

The golf team will be out to post a winning record for 
the fifth straight year, but Coach Harold Evans has only 
two lettermen, junior Ralph Lerner and Captain Don 

However. Evans feels that if several upperclassmen and 
two or three of the sophomores can come through, the 
Bison linksmen could make another strong challenge in 
the MAC Championships. Among the other promising play- 
ers on the squad are seniors Al Patterson and Leon Weiss, 
and junior Larry Kash. 

Coach Hank Peters has a similar problem with the tennis 
team. Co-Captains Jeff Nemerov and Don Warren are the 
only lettermen on the squad, but help is expected from 
sophomores Gary Baxel, Bruce Beardslee, Julius Brandes, 
John Rindlaub and junior Bruce Topman. 


There will be a new face on the Bison football coaching 
staff next fall when we open against Gettysburg on Sep- 
tember 21st. 

Fred Prender. the backfield coach for the past four 
years and head wrestling coach for the last three seasons, 
will take over as head football coach at Juniata College on 
July 1st.

Bucknell Summer School 

Programs and People 

by Dr. Frank W. Merritt, 
Professor of English and Director of the Summer School 


F you were to read the latest copy of the Bucknell Uni- 
versity Summer School Bulletin, you would get the im- 
pression that Summer School is a Program; for as you 
leafed through the booklet, you would see in bold-faced 
type: Graduate Program, Special Academic Program, Cul- 
tural Program, and Becreational Program. The Director 
of Summer School, however, though responsible for the 
program, more often sees Summer School as People: teach- 
ers, lecturers, actors, musicians, deans, registrars and li- 
brarians, dining-hall directors and workers, building and 
ground supervisors, custodians and grounds keepers, public- 
relations writers, clerks, secretaries, those who keep the 
bookstore running, and, of course, those whom all these 
serve : the students. 

Where do the students come from? Several years ago, 
our summer school students were chiefly from five states: 
Pennsylvania, of course, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, 
and Delaware. Last summer they came to us from twenty- 
six states and one foreign country, Japan. Six were from 
California, four from Iowa, six from Ohio, and four from 
Michigan. Since most of the students from the more distant 
states are teachers who are attending our Institutes which 
are financed by private and federal funds, we have gained 
over the past few years increasing numbers of teachers who 
know Bucknell and will recommend her to their students. 
Mr. Fitz Walling, Director of Admissions, confirmed this 
fact when he recently told the Director that he now receives 
letters of application from high school students in distant 
parts of the country who state that one of their teachers at- 
tended Summer School at Bucknell and recommended that 
they apply because Bucknell is first rate! 

Incidentally, the Director was surprised to learn that 
last year, though the largest number of students still came 
from Pennsylvania, the next largest came from New York. 
Only twelve students were from New Jersey ; forty-one from 
New York. Yet, a large proportion of our students in the 
regular session are from New Jersey. We wonder why New 
Jersey is so meagerly represented in our summer session. 

What do our students study and why? Most are pur- 
suing graduate studies. Last year about 446 of 821 students 
enrolled were studying for advanced degrees or special 
certifications. They are almost all ambitious educators. 
For some an advanced degree means an automatic advance 
in salary of several hundred dollars. Others are preparing 
for positions as supervisors or principals. One hundred 
sixty-nine were registered last year in courses leading to 
administrative certificates. Another comparatively lucra- 


tive position for which ninety-five were studying is that 
guidance counselor. 

Increasing numbers of our graduate students, one huj 
died ninety-two last year, come to improve their teachir, 
some by studying advanced subjects, others by learni:';* 
new and better methods for presenting their subject matti, 
and some by means of both. Such students have bek 
greatly encouraged to attend by receiving stipends ail 
scholarships from public and private sources. 

Forty teachers of Spanish and French spent seven ween 
on our campus as enrollees in our first National Defeni 
Act Summer Language Institute for Secondary SchoP 
Teachers. When they left, we think they had a good basfi 
background in modern methods of teaching foreign la] 
guages, the use of language laboratories, structural lingu 
tics, and French and Spanish culture. The officials of t 
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare must ha 
liked what they saw after spending several days observii 
our Institute, for we have a contract for an Institute f 

But the Language Institute is really only an infant amor 
our institutes. The granddaddy is our Summer Institu! 
in Science and Mathematics, sponsored by the Nation 
Science Foundation and Bucknell, which will be seven yea 
old this coming summer. This Institute is open to hi 
school teachers of biology, chemistry, mathematics, ai 
physics. Our particular Institute is designed to help teac 
ers who are "rusty" or perhaps were thrust into teaching 
science for which they were not fully prepared. Last ye 
seventy-four teachers were enrolled. Over the past s 
years, more than three hundred teachers have been with i 
— teachers from all over the United States. We feel th 
Bucknell is not only helping these fine people but is reachir 
out to help their students too. 

Similarly. Bucknell's Summer Institute of Americ 
Studies aims to assist teachers of social studies to instru 
their students in the nature and functions of those America 
economic, political, and social systems which form the foui 
dation of our rights and duties as citizens. About twent 
eight students have attended each year for the past thn 
years. Grants from the Coe Foundation of New Yoi 
financed the Institute during those years. This year tr 
Coe Foundation and other interested groups will help wit 
its financing.

The Student View 

The Implications of a Bowl 

by Ronni Vasilawsky '64 


EDGED between the sub-continents of India and 
China, the Union of Burma is located in the area that is 

, known as Southeast Asia. It is about the size of Texas, 
and it stretches from the high peaks of the Himalayas down 
to the waters of the Indian Ocean and the Adaman Sea. 
Burma was a kingdom until 1885, when she became a Brit- 

| ish colony. In 1948 Burma regained independence. It was 

[also in 1948 that the first Burma-Bucknell Week End was 
held. This particular week end has become a tradition at 

i Bucknell. April 5, 6, and 7, 1963, marked the celebration 

j of its fifteenth anniversary. 

Following the registration of eighty Burman and thirty- 

. three American guests Friday afternoon, the Ambassador's 

, Reception was held in Hunt Hall Living Room. His Excel- 

, lency, Ambassador U On Sein, was host at a reception for 
Bucknellians, Lewisburg residents, and other guests. 

Saturday morning, after the Ambassador's breakfast for 
Burmese guests, lectures and discussions were presented for 

i the benefit of the Burmese and American students. U Ba 
Myint, Educational Attache responsible for Burmese students 

I studying in the United States, discussed "The Educational 
Systems in Burma." "Some Implications of Buddhism for 

; the Christian Faith" was the topic for discussion by Dr. 

i Leon Wright of Howard University, and by U Maung Maung 

i Soe, Counselor of the Burmese Embassy. Recently, Dr. 

i Wright received a special certificate from the International 
Meditation Center in Rangoon authorizing him to teach 
Buddhism. Serving in several national organizations, his 
two years as Cultural Attache of the American Embassy in 
Rangoon, won for him various citations and the friendship 
of Burmese scholars and students. Following this discus- 
sion, Mr. John Dexter of the Department of State and Mr. 
Clifton Forster of the United States Information Agency ex- 
plained "Opportunities in the Foreign Service of the U. S. A." 
Saturday afternoon Bucknell's International Club spon- 

i sored a concert by folk singers Steve Addiss and Bill Crofut. 
Already popular in Burma, Addiss and Crofut made their 
spectacular American appearance last fall when entertain- 
ing the United Nations delegates at the party tendered by the 

i U. S. Mission and its chief, Adlai Stevenson. Last fall they 

i concluded a popular world-wide tour under the Department 

i of State. Their repertoire includes songs in the languages 
of over twenty nations. 

Throughout the day, Saturday, the Burmese student 

, guests were afforded the opportunity to "tape a letter home" 
which will be played by the Voice of America in Burma. 
The highlight of the week end was the Burma-Bucknell 

MAY 1963 

Banquet and International Party Saturday evening. The 
Burma-Bucknell Bowl, which symbolizes one hundred years 
of friendly relations between the people of Burma and Buck- 
nell University, was displayed in a place of honor at the 
head table. At the banquet Mr. Kenneth W. Slifer '26, 
Bucknell trustee, and Mr. Douglas Stewart '63 presented 
His Excellency, the Ambassador, with checks contributed 
by Alumni, students, faculty, and staff toward the fund for 
the American Medical Center at Dr. Seagrave's (the "Burma 
Surgeon") hospital in Namkhan, Burma. The total con- 
tributions exceeded $5,000.00. His Excellency, U On Sein. 
elaborated on the role of "A Diplomat in the United States." 
Dr. James Guyot of Yale University (in his speech, "The 
Frontier is Everywhere") encouraged both Americans and 
Burmans in their endeavors toward progress. 

The International Party provided a setting for the display 
of Burmese and American talent. Again, as in past years, 
the cane-ball game served as the greatest integrator of spirits. 

Bucknell's connections with Burma date back to the 
founding of our University. Eugenio Kincaid came to the 
Susquehanna Valley as a pioneer missionary in 1826. In 
1830 he sailed for Burma to work with Adoniram Judson. 
Maung Shaw Loo (Bucknell Class of 1864), great grandson 
of the King of Mayawaddy, was the son of parents who 
were among the first converts of Adoniram Judson. He ar- 
rived at Bucknell in 1856 as the first "foreign student" at 
Bucknell and as the first Burmese student to study in the 
United States. He later graduated from medical school. 
Upon return to Burma he chose to serve his home people in 
Moulmein. where he has become a legend. Because of the 
encouragement of the Burmese Embassy, the United States 
Department of State, and students the Burma-Bucknell Week 
End was inaugurated in 1948. It has been endorsed by 
secretaries of state and the higher echelons of the United 
States government as well as many noted Burmans. 

International cooperation and appreciation are concepts 
that are realized through our participation in the Burma- 
Bucknell Week End. We meet as students with a sincere 
interest in meeting new friends and strengthening old friend- 
ships. The desire to gain mutual understanding is the stimu- 
lant which gives this week end importance. We are able to 
accept for ourselves the responsibilities involved in continu- 
ing amiable relations between the people of Burma and the 
people of the United States. The increasing knowledge of 
each other's culture that is acquired during this annual 
week end is the most important ingredient in international 
understanding and cooperation. 

The Alumni Fund 

Alumni Justify 
Bucknell s Existence 


.LUMNI are the sole product of Bucknell University. 
We put all of our eggs in this one basket. No attempt is 
made at diversification. Alumni justify our existence and 
are ultimately responsible for the prestige we enjoy in our 
national culture. 

In taking a panoramic look at the Alumni Fund, we are 
constantly reminded of Kipling's poem: 

"Now this is the Law of the Jungle — 
As old and as true as the sky 
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper. 
But the Wolf that shall break it must die. 
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk 
The Law runneth forward and back — 
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf 
And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack." 

While neither the campus nor our alumni fellowship 
is a ""Jungle." and no Bucknellian is a "Wolf I we hope I . 
the Law holds: It is the "Pack" of alumni that gives us 
our strength. 

The Report for 196] -1962 

Early in April you received a booklet. "Gifts to Buck- 
nell/' being a financial report of fund and capital gifts 
for the fiscal year beginning July 1. 1961. and ending June 
30. 1962. This same report carried encouraging news of 
the accomplishments during the 1 1 years of annual-giving 
since the Alumni Fund was established in 1948. Most 
encouraging fact in the report was probably the listing 
of the names of over 1000 alumni who are interested enough 
tn become volunteers to help explain the program of the 
Alumni Fund to their classmates. 

The Fund This Year 

As we face the final two months of the 1962-63 fund 
year, it is well to remind ourselves again that the fund 
is operated on the University fiscal year rather than the 
calendar year, and that the current fund year began on 
Julv 1. 1962. and ends June 30. 1963. In other words. 

gifts to be credited for the current fund year should reach 
the Alumni Fund office not later than June 30. 1963. 

The current fund year is unique in at least two ways. 
In the first place, this is the first year since 1958-59 that 
we have had full fund solicitation of all alumni. It will be 
recalled that during the Dual Development Campaign, it 
was agreed that alumni who made cash or pledge gifts to 
that capital gift campaign would not be further solicited 
on behalf of the Alumni Annual-Giving Fund. In line with 
that promise, alumni who made gifts to the Dual Develop- 
ment Campaign have not been solicited since 1958-59. This 
circumstance means that a number of alumni who had 
become habitual annual givers to the Fund, have not been 
solicited during the past three years. The decision to omit 
for three years the general solicitation for the fund was 
fully justified for alumni responded generously to the Dual 
Development Campaign. But in this first year of resump- 
tion of full fund solicitation, we run the risk that many 
alumni will have gotten out of the habit of annual giving. 

In the second place, this year is unique because of the 
introduction of the William Bucknell Associates program, a 
plan offering charter membership in William Bucknell 
Associates to alumni and friends who are willing to con- 
tribute $100 or more to the Alumni Annual-Giving Fund. 
For many years the University has recognized big givers by 
designating as FOUNDERS those who have given 810.000 
or more, and have designated as PATRONS those who 
have given §1.000 or more, but less than SI 0.000 to the 
University. The names of these donors are published 
annually in the official University catalogue. But this is 
the first year that a category of distinctive support has 
been set up within the Alumni Annual-Giving program. 
The hoped-for goal this year is a membership of 500 
donors by June 30 to help achieve a new level for the 
Alumni Fund of S80.000. Achievement of an overall total 
of $80,000 in the Alumni Fund will represent about a one- 
third increase over the highest total of the fund which was 
reached in 1958-59. This is the average increase experi- 
enced on other campuses following a capital gifts campaign. 
As this is written, about 400 Bucknellians have responded 
to the William Bucknell Associates invitation. 


The Program of Reminders 

To properly publicize the new William Bucknell Asso- 
;iates program, the time schedule of mail and personal 
;ontact reminders was drastically revised. The time sched- 
ile being followed this year is as follows: 

Sept. 1962 — Personal solicitation of about 750 alumni 
and friends in 17 cities. 

Nov. 1962 — A letter of invitation from Dr. Merle M. 
Odgers, President of Bucknell, to about 
3500 alumni and friends throughout the 

Jan. 1963— An article in THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS, January 1963 (pages 16 and 17) 
extending an invitation to all alumni to 
become charter members in the William 
Bucknell Associates phase of the Alumni 

April 1 — Mailing of the Alumni Fund Report of 
the 1961-62 fund year and first general 
appeal for gifts to the current year's fund 
to all alumni. 

April 15 — Mailing of assistant class fund manager's 
notes. Almost 1.000 assistants, each writ- 
ing a personal note to ten or a dozen 

May 1 — Mailing of a letter reminder by 70 class 
fund managers to those classmates not 
previously contacted by the assistants. 

June 1 — Mailing of a final reminder of the clos- 
ing date of the fund year (June 30, 1963) 
to all alumni who have not yet contrib- 

Where We Stand Now 

So far the 1962-63 fund totals reflect the emphasis on 
advance and leadership giving mainly through the William 
Bucknell Associates program. The totals at the end of 
March show 501 contributors for a total of $26,674.37 
This compares with 2479 contributors for a total of 
$35,472.63 in March of 1959. the last year of full fund 
solicitation. The decrease in both dollars and donors is 
not cause for undue concern provided the reminders mailed 
to all alumni in April prove as effective as they have been 
in previous years. However, to reach our goal of $80,000 
in unrestricted funds to meet the "bread and butter" current 
budget needs will require the thoughtful and generous gifts 
of at least 5.000 alumni and friends. In the 11 years of 
our Alumni Fund experience, 52% of our alumni have re- 
sponded at one time or another, but not more than 29% 
have ever responded in a single year. If we could all get 
our violins tuned together this year, all records for increased 
annual-giving will move into new high ground.

A workshop for alumni workers is scheduled for the 
campus on the week end of August 9-11, 1963. Those to be 
invited include club presidents and other officers and repre- 
sentatives from each alumni club area, class fund managers, 
members of the Board of Directors of The General Alumni 
Association and others interested in becoming better ac- 
quainted with the club, class and general organization of 
the Association. 

As at last year's workshop, part of the week end will 
be devoted to recreation and participants will be invited to 
bring their families. Those who attend will be the guests 
of the University at the annual "Cavalcade of Champions" 
drum and bugle corps competition in Memorial Stadium on 
Saturday night. 


Two distinguished leaders from the fields of law and 
religion will be present at the 113th Annual Commence- 
ment on Sunday. June 2. to speak to the Class of 1963 and 
to receive honorary degrees. 

The Honorable Charles Klein. President Judge of the 
Orphans' Court for Philadelphia County, will be the com- 
mencement speaker and will receive the honorary degree of 
Doctor of Civil Law. He began his legal career as special 
counsel for the Pennsvlvania Department of Banking in 
1927 and served in important state legal posts until his 
appointment as associate judge of the Orphans' Court of 
Philadelphia in 1934. Since this time he has been elected 
to three ten-year terms as judge and was seated as President 
Judge in 1952. Among his numerous activities he is a wide- 
ly known lecturer and writer on building and loan and 
probate law. 

The Reverend Elmer G. Homrighausen, Dean of Prince- 
ton Theological Seminary, will deliver the Baccalaureate 
sermon, and will receive the honorary degree of Doctor of 
Humane Letters. Before moving to Princeton in 1938 he 
was a minister and educator in the mid-west. In 1955 he 
became Dean of the theological school at Princeton. His 
participation, both national and international, with educa- 
tional and religious groups has gained for him prominence 
as one of the nation's leaders in religious education.

The March 1963 issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUSi 
carried the pictures and biographical sketches of three (. 
worthy candidates for nomination to the Board of Trustees* 
of Bucknell University, one of whom will be nominated and! 1 
will serve on the Board for the next five years. 

On April 1st, a ballot was mailed to every Alumnus 
for whom a good address is on file at Alumni Headquarters 

Even though few voters can be expected to know per- 
sonally all three of the candidates, every Alumnus can, by 
reference to the material appearing in the March issue of 
THE BUCKNELL ALUMNUS, make his or her selection 
and vote. If your March issue is misplaced, a selection of 
your favorite candidate can be made from the very brief 
biography appearing on the ballot itself. 

This ballot procedure is conducted at considerable ex 
pense and is carried on to preserve the democratic processes 
under which your General Alumni Association operates. 
It is another service provided by your Alumni Headquar- 
ters staff on the campus. 

Polls close on May 16. Be sure your ballot, postmarked 
no later than May 16. is in the mail. 


Many members of the faculty and administration have 
aided the alumni program by serving as speakers at alumni 
club meetings during this academic year. Faculty and staff 
members who represented the University at alumni club 
affairs are: J. Ben Austin. Jr.. Forrest D. Brown, Dr. Doug- 
las K. Candland, Dean Mark C. Ebersole, Trennie E. Eisley 
'31, Eugene A. Evans M.S. '53, Dr. James A. Gathings, John 
S. Gold To. Dr. Wesley N. Haines, Dean John C. Hayward. 
Raymond K. Irwin '47, Dr. C. Herschel Jones, Benton A. 
Kribbs M.S. '59. Robert A. Latour. Dean Charles A. Meyn.

The Board of Directors of the Bucknell Engineering 
Alumni Association held their regular winter meeting at 
the Engineers' Club in New York City on February 1, 1963. 
Present were: Harry H. Angel '19, Mrs. Claire Wynkoop 
Carlson '49. M. Eugene Cook '43. James W. Diffenderfer. 
Jr. '43, Dean Herbert F. Eckberg. Frank E. Gerlitz, Jr. '34, 
Morris D. Hooven '20. George A. Irland '15. Emil Kordish 
'42, President Roy H. Landis '22, J. B. Miller '26, R. Barlow 
Smith '27. Bernard M. Tostanoski '50. and T. Cortlandt 
Williams '20. 

Dean of the College of Engineering Herbert F. Eckberg 
reported on the progress of engineering education at Buck- 
nell and the fine report received from the accrediting agency, 
the Engineers Council for Professional Development. All 
four engineering departments have been accredited for the 
maximum period of five years. 



On February 1, 1963, the Board of Directors of the Bucknell En- 
gineering Alumni Association met in New York City. Some of the 
members attending the meeting were (I. to r.) T. Cortland t Wil- 
liams '20, Mrs. Claire Wynkoop Carlson '49, Roy H. Lundis '22, and 
Dean Herbert F. Eckberg. 

Reports were received from committee chairmen and a 
general discussion followed. It was agreed that engineer- 
ing Alumni could contribute greatly in helping to recruit 
good students for our engineering program. Dean Eckberg 
mentioned that he expects to write to two hundred Alumni, 
'asking them to contact applicants. 

A meeting of the chairman of BEAA committees was 
held on March 16, 1963, in the Dana Engineering Building. 
Donald Betty '51, Jim Diffenderfer '43, Morris Hooven '20, 
George Irland '15, Roy Landis '22, and T. Cortlandt Wil- 
liams '20 attended this meeting with Dean Eckberg. Dis- 
cussion centered on improvements needed in facilities and 
programs for the College of Engineering. 


If you live in or near New York City or will be visiting

On January 25. 1963, Bucknell's soccer coaches, Henry 
"Hank" Peters '39 and William "Bill" Gold '46. teamed up 
with Robert E. Walgran '48, captain of the MAC cham- 
pionship team of 1948, to form what will henceforth be 
known as the Bucknell Soccer Association. 

This organization, the nucleus of which is the 195 for- 
mer soccer lettermen, has no prerequisites for membership 
other than an interest in a good Bucknell soccer program. 
In fact, there are no dues or meetings or membership cards, 
and membership is open to every Alumnus interested in 

The primary purpose of the organization is to encour- 
age scholastically capable high school and preparatory 
school soccer stars to apply for admission to Bucknell. If 
you have an interest in Bucknell soccer and if you know 

of a boy who meets the qualifications necessary to attend 
Bucknell and play intercollegiate soccer, contact Robert 
Walgran, president pro-tem of the association. Bob lives at 
R. D. 1, Westlawn, Lewisburg. 


The Duel for France: 1944 
Houghton Mifflin Company, 1963 

In The Duel for France: 1944, we have the author's 
compressed version of his comprehensive history of the bat- 
tle of Normandy. Breakout and Pursuit, which came out in 
1961 as a volume in the official series entitled The United 
Slates Army in World War II. Unlike Breakout, and Pur- 
suit, this latest version, aimed exclusively at the general 
reader, contains less detail than the earlier version, and it 
carries no documentation. But in being compressed it has 
lost nothing in accuracy, and it has gained both in interest 
and in style. Mr. Blumenson is in the way of becoming an 
accomplished writer. 

This book describes the fighting in France from the be- 
ginning of July through the tenth of September, 1944. When 
the battle began, the Allies held a crowded beachhead in 
Normandy; when it ended, they had penetrated to the West 
Wall. The story of this stupendous struggle is told largely 
from the point of view of those in high command. Here 
the reader will see in action American and German com- 
manders, as well as British. Canadian, and French. Here 
he will see a drama unfolding in four acts: the break- 
through, the breakout, the encirclement and drive to the 
Seine, and the pursuit beyond the Seine. Here he will see 
how, after fierce fighting in hedgerows and elsewhere, the 
war in Normandy shifted from one of position to one of 
movement. The battle of Normandy became the battle for 
France. By August 25 Paris was liberated ; by September 
10 the Allies were farther advanced than were the Allies of 
World War I on November 11. 1918. It appeared that the

k_JiNCE July 1. 1962. thirty-five alumni clubs have held 
sixty-three meetings, and Bucknellians in Arizona. Louisi- 
ana, and Texas have held informal dinner meetings. In the 
organized club areas 13.908 Alumni and 1.895 Bucknell 
parents have had an opportunity to meet. This means that 
71.9% of the total alumni population and an overwhelming 
81.9% of the parents had the opportunity to hear eleven fac- 
ulty members, twelve staff members, and eight alumni 

By June 30. 1963, it is anticipated that 75% of all 
Alumni will have been given an opportunity to show their 
continuing interest in Bucknell by attending club functions. 
This excellent representation does not include the attendance 
at class reunions and other University related activities. 
Nor does this percentage indicate the fine work being done 
by Alumni in other areas such as admissions and fund 

Continuing as the most popular club activities are the 
freshman receptions in late August and early September 
and the Charter Day celebrations from January to April. 
This year eighteen clubs held freshman receptions with pro- 
grams ranging from swimming parties to teas. Also, nine- 
teen clubs planned Charter Day celebrations. When the 
final roll of Charter Day meetings was taken, only one club 
was forced to cancel because of bad weather — an excellent 
record considering the severe winter we have experienced. 

In addition to these celebrations. Bison Roundups, 
monthly dinners, and weekly luncheons continued to be a 
regular part of the club program. The Bucknell Alumni 
Club of Harrisburg has been a consecutive leader in num- 
ber of meetings held each year and again heads the list 
with nine. Clubs in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh held week- 
ly luncheons and Alumni in New York City and Scranton 
have had an opportunity to attend regular monthly lunch- 
eons. Also, during the Pennsylvania Education Association 
Convention, the Pennsylvania Baptist Convention, and the 
American Baptist Convention. Bucknellians have met at in- 
formal luncheon or breakfast meetings. 

We are proud of the record of our club program and 
especially proud of the hundreds of Alumni who help make 
this particular alumni activity a success. We only wish 
we could list the names of the?e tireless workers for Buck- 
nell. but unfortunately, space does not permit such a listing. 
Instead, we wish to publicly express our gratitude for a job 
well done and extend our wishes for another year of unsur- 
passed achievement in 1963-64. 


A regular monthly dinner meeting of the Bucknell Alum- 
ni Club of Harrisburg was held at the YMCA on Thurs- 
day. March 7, 1963, at 6:15 P. M. 

Mr. Bruce Butt presented his usual informative report 
on the activities of area Alumni. A highlight of the report 
was the fact that the club treasurer, Marshall S. Goulding 
'52. and his wife recently became the proud parents of a baby 

President H. Keith Eisaman "12. in preparation for the 
April meeting at which time new officers will be elected, 
appointed a nominating committee composed of Bruce Butt 

'16 as chairman, Jean Slack '49, and Mrs. Frank Williams 
(Pearl Ream '12 ). 

The program for the evening was a trip to England, 
Ireland, and Scotland through the colorful slides taken and 
narrated by Mrs. Foster Kitchen (Winifred E. Miller '55). 


On January 28, 1963, Alumni and parents in the Wil- 
mington area had an opportunity to celebrate Bucknell's 
Charter Day at an open house at the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Paul Lotto '49 (Elizabeth Bryant '50). 

A total of 17 Bucknellians attended the affair and had 
a delicious catered roast beef dinner. After dinner, 35mm 
colored slides of the campus ( supplied by the Alumni Office ) 
were shown. Following this entertainment, there was a 
discussion of present and future club activities. 

Because of the success of the affair, all were agreed that 
a change-of-pace meeting such as this should be tried again. 


For the second year in a row Bucknellians in the Buck- 
nell Alumni Club of South Jersey experienced success with 
their late evening buffet supper and Bucknell birthday cele- 
bration. Over one hundred Alumni and friends attended 
the affair. 

The party was held at Glassboro State College in Glass- 
boro. N. J., and featured games, musical selections (which 
included Bucknell songs) by a choral group of Glassboro 
students, and last but not least a brief talk by John S. Gold 
'18, professor of mathematics and astronomy at Bucknell. 

At a short business meeting the following Alumni were 
elected to office: Harlan A. Downer '29, president; Mrs. 
Rowland B. Porch ( Rae-Louise Shultz '40), vice president; 
Mrs. Roy S. Irving (Naomi Cowen '56), secretary; and 
Roy S. Irving '57. treasurer.

celebration in South Jersey on March 15 are: (I. to r.) Marwood B.

area for their interest and assistance in promotion of the 
alumni relations program of the University. 


Alumni and parents in the Philadelphia area celebrated 
the 117th year of the founding of Bucknell on February 1 
with a dinner at McAllister's and Sons.

Emeritus Club 

a cordial invitation to attend a recep- 
tion on Saturday, June 1, 1963, from 
2:30 to 4:30 P. M.. in Larison Hall 
Living Room. 

We were saddened to learn of the death 
of BARCLAY REYNOLDS '96 on February 
,20, 1963, in the Jennersville Community Hos- 
pital after a brief illness. He had made his 
home in nearby Oxford for the past five years. 
' Born in Rising Sun, Md., on September 16, 
1874, he attended public school there until 
he was 13, then he entered a private school 
which was fostered by the Society of Friends. 
After graduating there in 1892, he entered 
Bucknell. Upon receiving the degree of Ph.B. 
from Bucknell in 1896, he taught English for 
more than 40 years in private schools for boys, 
mainly in Philadelphia and environs. In 1919 
the College Entrance Examination Board ap- 
pointed him one of the examiners in English, 
in which capacity he served for five years. 
During World War II he served as publicity 
chairman of the Cecil County, Md., Red Cross, 
at the same time being chairman of the Board 
of Trustees of the Rising Sun Community 
Library. He was a member of the Society of 
Friends and Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, and 
a former member of St. David's Golf Club 
of Wayne and the Union League Club of Phil- 
adelphia. Interment was at Nottingham Meet- 
ing, Rising Sun, Md. Our sincere sympathy 
is extended to the survivors which include a 
niece, three nephews and a grandnephew, 

Miss CLAIRE M. CONWAY '05 died of a 
heart condition on March 7, 1963. She was 
80. Claire attended Thiel College before en- 
tering Bucknell where she became a member 
of Pi Beta Phi sorority. She earned her Mas- 
ter of Arts degree at Bucknell in 1922, and 
taught in Nanticoke High School from 1905 
to 1948 with the exception of three years of 
service at Bloomsburg State Teachers College. 
From 1948 to 1950, she taught at Wilkes Col- 
lege. She was a devoted Bucknellian, served 
as alumni president of her Class of 1905, was 
responsible for sending many young people 
to Bucknell and helped place many of them 
in teaching positions upon graduation. Funeral 
services were held March 9 with Rev. L. 
Edward Robbins, pastor of First English Bap- 
tist Church, officiating. Interment was held 
in Hanover Green Cemetery. 

In closing may I remind you that May 31, 
June 1, and 2, 1963, is Alumni Week End on 
the Bucknell campus. We, the members of the 
Bucknell Emeritus Club, are the perennial 
reunion group on the campus, and each year 
more and more members return to meet for- 

mer classmates and relive college experiences.

that the Class of 1913 has invited us to attend 
a reception on Saturday afternoon, June 1. 
from 2:30 to 4:30 o'clock in Larison Hall 
Living Room. On behalf of the Emeritus Club

mation will be available in either future cor-

SHOLL '10, or the week end program which 
will be available at the registration desks.

June Reunion — 1963 

Greetings to '03. As we move along in 
years, we seem to be rather reluctant to send 
any news of ourselves. Perhaps we may be 
waiting for a reunion year to have an op- 
portunity to see each other. The time has 
arrived. Our 60th reunion on May 31, June 
1, and 2 will give us the chance to meet 
with the Emeritus Club on Saturday morning, 
June 1, and also accept the most gracious in- 
vitation of the Class of 1913 to meet with them 
at their social hour on Saturday afternoon, 
June 1. Plan to come. Please let your report- 
er know something about you and family. 

Had a nice note from the Rev. CHARLES 
FRED EISENMENGER on his 92nd birthday 
in January, reporting that in October he had 
been ill for a short time but is now back in 
his home in Montoursville free from aches 
and pains and gaining strength daily. Con- 
gratulations, Charles, on your birthday. 

Miss IDA E. LUCHSINGER, 83, died at 
her home in West Pittston on March 22. Miss 
Ida had been in poor health since injuring 
her hip in a fall last December. Always a 
devoted and loyal Alumna of Bucknell, she 
was particularly active in the affairs of our 
class and seldom missed an opportunity to 
celebrate our reunions on the campus. While 
a student she helped found the Delta Delta 
Delta sorority and spent her entire career as 
a high school teacher, retiring in 1949. She 
is survived by two brothers. VICTOR B. 
LUCHSINGER '08 and Russell Luchsinger, 
who both reside at the family home, 300 Exe- 
ter Ave., West Pittston. Deep sympathy of 
her class and her University is extended lo 
the surviving brothers.

A good letter from COIT HOECHST! That's 
news! Coit says he's had to slow down, which 
means probably he now moves only twice as 
fast as the rest of us. He says he still walks 
every day when the weather permits (I didn't 

know it ever did in Pittsburgh) from his 
home at 120 Bayard Place. Pittsburgh. His 
daughter Ruth and husband, with grandchil- 
dren Ralphie and Connie live with him. Coit 
still plays the cello, but has given up most of 
the dozen other instruments he used to play. 
(Last time I was at his home, he pulled out 
a fiddle and made me play duets with him. 
Dr. Aviragnet would have been horrified at 
my playing.) Coit and his family had a bad 
Thanksgiving. They went to Beaver for din- 
ner. When they returned they found that a 
burglar had ransacked the house. Luckily 
they had insurance. Coit still has records of 
the singing he, PAUL STOLZ '08. and 
FRANK GIBSON '09 did on one of his trips 
back to Lewisburg. He says folks are em- 
barrassingly kind to him. To anyone who 
knows Coit, this is not surprising! 

A card from ERNEST and CAROLINE 
BURROWS was sent from Van Nuys Airport, 
Calif. They had spent several weeks with son 
Walter and family in Los Angeles, Calif., and 
were now flying back home to West Chester. 
In California they had a good visit with 
NEY and saw CHIEF PARSON '08 several 
times. Buzz hopes they will be at Commence- 

Your scribe is conducting a correspondence 
extension course in public affairs by letters to 
the editors of newspapers. Just now he is 
plugging Nelson Rockefeller for the Republi- 
can presidential nomination. He's delighted 
to learn Coit is also a good Republican. 
How's about the rest of y'all? 

FLASH— GEORGE RIGGS reports that he 
does not have any more grandchildren, but 
that he does have a great-granddaughter. Any 
of you other greybeards have a great-grand- 
child to report? George says it makes him 
feel he's growing old. None of that guff, 
George. That word "old" is tabu in 1907 

Hope to see you at Lewisburg in June.

■•"" June Reunion — 1963 

MAY 1963 

It is often said that "no news is good news." 
but such is not the case when one is a class 
reporter and requested to publish a report 
in each issue of THE BUCKNELL ALUM- 
NUS. So, how about helping me out — don't 
be bashful! SEND ME NEWS! 

This year marks the 55th year since our 
graduation from Bucknell. Of course, we are 
members of the Emeritus Club and will be 
meeting with this group at certain times dur- 
ing Alumni Week End. However, we still 
have a strong class spirit and we plan to have 
at least one meeting of our own during the 
reunion week end. CHARLES A. NICELY, 
our cordial class president, is planning a get- 
together at his home in Watsontown for the 
"early birds" who arrive in Lewisburg on 
Friday evening, May 31. More information 
concerning the directions to Charlie's home 
and transportation from Lewisburg will be 

Why don't you circle the dates of May 31. 
June 1, and 2, 1963, on your calendar now, 
and plan to meet with members of the Class 
of '08 for a gala week end. I'll be looking 
for you. 

A letter from Mary Parson Kingon. daugh-

WILLIAM E. PARSON, JR., '32, informed 


me of a reunion between the Parsons. Mr. and 
ROWS '39, and Major and Mrs. Kingon 
during the Christmas holiday season. She 
sent to me some beautiful color pictures of 
the celebrants, but, unfortunately, they can- 
not be reproduced in the magazine. Our

means YOU. 

Death came unexpectedly to WILLIAM 
LEISER, III. M.D., at his home on February 
5, 1963. Dr. Leiser had given up his medical 
practice because of ill health in 1930 and 
had returned to Lewisburg. A member of 
Kappa Sigma fraternity, he had attended Buck- 
nell Academy from 1902 until 1905, earned 
his A.B. degree at Bucknell in 1909 with an 
M.A. degree awarded in 1913, the same year 
in which he was awarded the Doctor of Medi- 
cine degree by the University of Pennsylvania. 
Before and following World War I he prac- 
ticed medicine in Reading and served on the 
staffs of the St. Joseph's Hospital and Reading 
Hospital as an eye, ear, nose and throat spe- 
cialist. He served as first lieutenant in the 
medical department during World War I. In 
1951 he married Mrs. MARTHA LEISER 
CHANCE '21 and since then they have resided 
at 35 North Fourth St., Lewisburg. Our deep- 
est sympathy is extended to Martha and her 
daughters, Mrs. MARTHA CHANCE WAL- 
CELSKY '51. 

GEORGE F. BAILETS has been reelected 
secretary-treasurer of the Bucknell Alumni

The Class of 1913 

extends to the members of the 

Class of 1910 

a cordial invitation to attend a recep- 
tion on Saturday, June 1, 1963, from 
2:30 to 4:30 P. M., in Larison Hall 
Living Room. 

The members of the Class of 1910 will be 
happy to come to 1913's reception on Satur- 
day afternoon, June 1, and reune with them 
on their memorable "fiftieth.'' What a fine, 
friendly gesture that invitation is! 

WINNIE DICKSON Hardgrove is planning 
another trip, to start the middle of July. This 
summer she'll be going to Hawaii, the South 
Sea Islands, Australia, and Southeast Asia — 
all in 46 days. Happy traveling, Winnie! 

SARA RAY WAY and your class corre- 
spondent are in St. Petersburg enjoying warm 
sunshine, birds, and flowers (the mid-De- 
cember deep-freeze didn't kill them all, I'm 
glad to say). We anticipated with much 
pleasure the St. Petersburg-Bucknell Club 
luncheon at the Wedgewood on March 23, 
when Dr. and Mrs. Odgers were guests. Our 
classmate. Dr. EARLE EDWARDS opened 
the luncheon with prayer. We greeted a 
fourth member of our class, EMILY LANE 
Yoder, who is at her Sarasota, Fla., home for 
the winter.

"Sweet are the uses of adversity" — EARL

items is not recommended. The letters have 
been very kind and solicitous. 

The Class of 1913 

extends to the members of the

a cordial invitation to attend a recep-

JOSE VILLALON writes that he and his 
good wife, ERNESTINE (HYATT F09), 
celebrated his retirement from business by 
first taking a summer trip through Maine and 
Canada; then taking a cruise to Spain, Italy 
and the French Riviera. Now he is probably 
ready to go back to work. 

Fred and MARGARET (CURTIS) Bush 
sent an optimistic note from Montrose. They 
are looking forward to the next reunion. Heav- 
en bless them! 


The 1963 football schedule provides two excellent week ends in New 
England. Here is an opportunity for you and the family to spend one — or 
two — week ends in New England in the early fall. 

Alumni Headquarters has made preliminary investigations and presents 
below descriptions of room accommodations available — if you make reser- 
vations now. 


Bucknellians are already showing interest in traveling to Dartmouth 
for our football game there on Saturday afternoon, September 28, 1963. 

Early inquiries show that all of the facilities at Hanover Inn in Hanover 
have already been reserved for Dartmouth folks. 

We have made arrangements with Norwich Inn and Motel — a fine coun- 
try inn one mile from Dartmouth — at Norwich, Vt. for a limited number of 
double rooms. They are available on a two-night minimum basis for Friday 
and Saturday nights. September 27 and 28. 1963. at a rate of $12 and $15 
daily depending on the type and location of the accommodation. 

These rooms are offered on a first come-first served basis. Reserva- 
tions should be made by mail to Mr. Sumner W. Evans. Resident Manager. 
Norwich Inn and Motel. Norwich, Vt.. together with a $25 deposit on each 
room reserved. 

If interested, we would suggest that you take steps now to make your 
reservation directly with Mr. Evans. 


Amherst College will also be playing a home game at Amherst, Mass., 
on Saturday afternoon, October 5, at the same time we are scheduled to play 
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Mass. 

The Lord Jeffery (a Treadway Inn) Amherst, Mass., has a limited num- 
ber of singles ($7 to $12) and doubles ($12418). Reservations should be 
made now to Mr. Norman N. Enman, Innkeeper, The Lord Jeffery. Amherst, 

Overnight facilities are also available at The Schine Northampton Hotel 
and Motor Inn in Northampton. Mass. (an easy eight miles from Amherst) 
at these rates: singles ($8.50 to $10.00), twins ($14.50 to $22.00), dormi- 
tory space at $5.00 per bed. For advance reservations write Mr. Joseph E. 
Stoye. Director of Sales, or call him at JU 4-3100. 



item concerning her un-retired husband, Dr. 
LEO '07. You know, Leo really belongs to 
our class. He started his teaching career in 
1907. We certainly helped him. Vera en- 
closed a clipping from the Lakeland, Fla., 
newspaper relating Leo's part (while head 
of the Department of Arts and Sciences at Col- 
gate University) in awarding a degree to the 
late Robert Frost. It would be interesting to 
hear from Leo sometime about his contacts 
with the great and near-great — other than 
members of our Class of 1911. Vera has been 
appointed a member of the Honorary Anni- 
versary Committee for the Seventy-fifth Anni- 
versary Meeting of the National Council of 
Women of the United States, to be held in 
Washington, D. C, in June. This organiza- 
tion is the United States affiliate of the In- 
ternational Council of Women, and has ar- 
ranged a program which will exemplify the 
important role of women in the modern world. 
As one elder statesman has said, "women are 
the cement that holds our modern civilization 
together." More power to them! 

Our good ministerial classmate, FRED MC- 
ALLISTER, although retired, is serving as in- 
terim pastor now and again for those church- 
es near his home in Cincinnati, Ohio, in need 
of such service. Fred writes for several of the 
denominational magazines. He recently wrote 
an interesting editorial for Christianity Today 
in which he summed up the virtues we demand 
in a minister — careful in his manners in the 
pulpit; no unpleasant mannerisms; be careful 
in his speech, public and private; well dressed, 
certainly; a cheerful countenance for the sick 
and the bereaved; take intelligent part in pub- 
lic affairs; friendliness to all, never the snob. 
We who know Mac realize that unwittingly 
he has summed up his own ministerial career. 

In the now-it-can-be-told department EARL 
HINMAN sent a clipping about some students 
in the Monroeton High School who tied a cow 
in the principal's office. LEON CRANDALL 
'12, JAY MINGOS, and EARL were class- 
mates. Did someone mention juvenile delin- 
quents? Earl is back in circulation again in 
his town, Glenside, after recovering from the 
fractured pelvis. 

"JAKE" BOWMAN explained why he had 
to stay away from our 50th reunion. He had 
a warning from his heart that all was not 
well. That, following a hernia operation, 
was ample reason for Jake's absence. He 
has now recovered, and is leading a careful 
normal life. 

I planned to takes the sixty-mile walk back 
to Lewisburg for the Emeritus Club reunion 
on June 1, but my doctor has ordered me back 
in the wheel chair until May 11. That late 
date for getting on my feet prevents me from 
having any thoughts of getting to the June re- 
union. I hope that as many of our classmates 
as possible will be able to make the trek and 
that they will send me reports on their experi-

MAY 1963 

On Thursday, January 31. 1963, ANTON O. 
WOLFE, JR. '39 telephoned from Atlanta 
Ga., telling us that his father had passed away 
January 20 in Tulsa. Okla. Oscar suffered an 
attack on Sunday. January 20, and was taken 
to the hospital. He died about 11:00 o'clock 
that night. An autopsy showed that death 
was due to a ruptured aorta. His funeral was 
held in the Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Okla., 
January 23. His body will be kept in Okla- 
homa temporarily until it is brought to Penn- 
sylvania for burial. Oscar was a consulting 
engineer, a fellow American Society of Me- 
chanical Engineers, and was listed in Who's 
Who in Engineering and Who's Who in the 
Southwest. He was a member of Phi Gamma 
Delta fraternity at Bucknell, a Mason, and a 
communicant of the Episcopal Church. Deep- 
est sympathy is extended from the Class of 
1912 to his wife, Lucy Loane Wolfe, a grad- 
uate of Allegheny College in 1911, and his 
son, ANTON, JR. '39. 

Visited the children and grandchildren at 
Camp Hill. While there I spent some time 
hashed over the reunion from A to Z, includ- 
ing everybody and everything. 

Also saw the MIKLES— Renee and ROY TO. 
It is almost a year since I have seen them. 
They are sick of this awful winter — who isn't? 

Then I visted Petrona HEAN, FRANK'S 
window. After Frank's death she went to her 
daughter's home in New Cumberland. She 
was so depressed, didn't want to go any place. 
nor see anyone. Finally she went to a nurs- 
ing home in Philadelphia. There she found 
some old friends from Lewistown. She felt 
much better, was getting ready to come home 
when she fell and broke her hip. They 
brought her to the Harrisburg Hospital in an 
ambulance. She was there for many weeks. 
Now she is much improved, back in her own 
home and has taken a new lease on life. 

On February 18 I had my last ear appoint- 
ment at Geisinger at 11:00 A. M. I said to 
Pop, "Now it won't take too long so I would 
like to go to see MARY JAMESON Colwell 
11 for a few minutes because I don't know 
when I'll get over this way again." My ap- 
pointment was late — getting near the lunch 
hour. Pop took me to her house but "muled" 
up on me and wouldn't go in. Mary and I 
covered a lot of territory, my time being lim- 
ited. When I got into the car I proceeded to 
bawl him out so he said I was the one one 
needed to have my head examined — going to a 
person's home at lunch time. I didn't think 
about lunch nor was I undernourished but I 
did want to see Mary after 45 years. I guess 
Pop and Emily Post are pals. 

Due to OSCAR WOLFE's death, Dr. AR- 
THUR WALTZ of Lansdowne, has graciously 
consented to be our fund manager — so save 
your nickels. 

Think I saw a robin today and a blade of 
green grass.

••"" June Reunion — 1963 


May 31, 1963 


You will be pleased to learn that we have 
gone over the $10,000.00 goal for our Memo- 

rial gift. This will make the Class of 1913 
the first class to be a "Founder of Bucknell." 
Now we can truly celebrate in June. 

RAYMOND GOEHRING died in his office 
in Pittsburgh last January 11. Raymond did 
not graduate with us — he transferred to Wit- 
tenberg, Ohio — but his affection for Buck- 
nell and the class brought him back for our 
45th reunion, and also prompted him to make 
a liberal contribution to our 50th Memorial 

Five members of our class live in Florida — 
and your reporter. We extend an invitation 
to the class to have its 75th Anniversary in 
Florida for a hot reunion. 

On May 31, June 1, and 2 our class will 
gather for its 50th reunion. When we grad- 
uated in 1913 I suppose none of us gave any 
thought to the remote year of 1963. Now it 
shocks us that the 50 years have passed so 
quickly. The year 1963 we ignored now com- 
mands our attention. 1913 in now in the re- 
mote past. But I am sure we will all be glad 
to meet at Bucknell in June and as a class look 
back to that great year of 1913 and recall our 
college years. But we will do more than look 
back to 1913. We will look at 1963 too and 
note how much we have increased in wisdom. 
And since our class is a forward looking class 
we will look into the future and make plans 
for many more class reunions. We trust every 
member can attend. It it is impossible to at- 
tend send your greetings to the class to our 
President— MARWOOD^ GLOVER, P. O. Box 
173, Vineland, N. J., and you will not be 
marked absent. 

Marwood reminds us not to forget the break- 
fast hour at 8:00 o'clock Saturday morning. 
June 1. All members of our class will gather 
at that time at the John Houghton Harris Din- 
ing Hall in Swartz Hall.

comes word of an honor. Son, CARL '43, is 
co-author of a new textbook on Managerial 
Accounting. Carl wrote nineteen of the twen- 
ty-two chapters in this college level book and 
made most of the problems. He is associate 
professor in the School of Business. Lehigh 
University, Bethlehem. Congratulations to the 
proud parents, and to Carl. 

Any others of our illustrious class with 
honors to report? Pass information about 
you and yours along. News is scarce. Your 
friends want to know about you. 

We are all saddened by the death of WAL- 
LACE C. "RED" LOWTHER. 71. at the Blue 
Ridge Haven Nursing Home in Harrisburg on 
March 19, 1963. Red had been ill for a long 
time and in the fall of 1962 sold his home in 
South Orange, N. J., and moved to Lemoyne. 
Soon thereafter he became a patient at the 
nursing home. His record as an active Buck-

Whatever became of the Class of '15? Too 
many issues of The BUCKNELL ALUMNUS 
without us. Except for a reference now and 
then to one of our classmates in the report of 
some other class, we know nothing of what 
our members are doing. Won't you please 
write to me? Is anyone going back for Com- 
mencement ? 

ED NANCARROW, principal of Upper 
Darby High School, was given a tribute by 
the University of Pittsburgh School of Edu- 
cation recently at a dinner in his honor. His 
contributions to secondary education were 
praised. Ed holds his Ed.D. from Pitt. He is 
a past national president of the principals as- 
sociation and also has headed its Pennsyl- 
vania branch. The citation awarded him at 
the dinner in his honor read in part: "his ca- 
reer as an outstanding teacher and principal 
... his able and vigorous effect to improve the 
quality of education . . . and his stature as 
a professional leader at the local state and na- 
tional levels." Congratulations, but where

Do you belong to a Bucknell Alumni Club? 
If you do. let us know. Our St. Pete Club 
had representatives from the following classes 
at the last meeting: '98, '02, '05, '07, '08, 
'09, '10. '11, '12, '14, '16, '18, and '23. Of our 
generation Grace and BRUCE RANCK '18 
were on hand. He is our DAYTON'S cousin 
and a Duponter. 

MARTHA PARK Whitman has donated a 
small collection of rocks and minerals to the

We suggest "SHORTY" SNYDER do like- 
wise with his "dead arm" which last was ex- 
ercised on the diamonds of the British Isles 
in 1919. He played shortstop for the Uni- 
versity of London when sent to the Isles from 
the Army of Occupation. He also played third 
base for the All-Star Yanks in the same year 
in England. May all your drives and putts 
be good this summer, Shorty! 

CHARLES GUBIN retired as postmaster of 
Northumberland after 28 years of service. 
Charles will now have opportunity to spend 
more time in his other activities: his stamp 
collection and his interest in athletics.

you like to play golf in these mountains? It 
is very beautiful and we love the soft sweet

Wife. HELEN '14, and daughter, MARY 
ELLEN '42, will be visiting Spain and other 
countries on the continent this summer. Son, 
Eric, is in Spain for six months doing some 
work for the Spanish government in the field 
of marketing in which he has pioneered as a 
full professor at Purdue University. He has 
his family with him in Madrid, a city which 
my two women will probably tour to a frazzle. 
Good old handyman BRUCE BUTT helped 
expedite the son's safari by getting him a 
birth certificate in short order.

on November 5, 1962, at the age of 73, fol- 
lowing an extended illness. Art was super- 
vising principal of Emlenton Public Schools 
from 1917 until his retirement in 1952. After 
a year of retirement, he re-entered teaching 
for an additional five years. He is survived 


by his wife, the former Anna Heydenreich, 
and five children. 

FRANCES HILGERT Higgs reports that 
between weather and substitute teaching she 
is going to Florida for two months. She will 
go to Miami Shores, Pompano Beach and 
Fort Lauderdale. She hopes to see, or at 
least talk to, ELINOR HYATT Schoen and 
many other Bucknellians. Oh yes, she is go- 
ing to stop and see BETTY KATES in Vir- 
ginia on the way down and take a side trip 
to Nassau. Have fun Frances! I enjoyed 
your letter. 

We had a very nice Philadelphia B. U. 
party February 1. I had hoped the YONS 
would get up as our guests, but "BRICK" just

go to The Flanders. 

Met MEREDITH ABBOTT's cousin at our 
B. U. party and she told me "MED" had told 
her to look up "Ray and Tip," when she got 
there and say "hello" for him. I was indeed 
pleased. He never answered my letter when 
I wrote for news. However, he lives in Pit- 
man-Glassboro (N. J.) area and has a very 
fine hardware and implement business. He 
has three grown children and several grand- 
children. His store is on Delsey Drive near 
Glassboro, N. J. Look him up if you're down 
that way. We're going to some day — I 

Come on some of you, of whom we never 
hear, break down and send me a note about 
you. Don't wait till I have to write your

a chance to get re-acquainted. 

Remember the dates: May 31, June 1, and 
2, and come to Lewisburg prepared to meet 
and greet a host of old time friends and ac- 

Other Bucknellians keep asking whatever 
happened to the Class of 1918, and so do I. 
Since so many of you are now retired, you 
should have plenty of time to write of your

We regret to announce the passing of one 
of our most prominent classmates, HERBERT 
E. STOVER, on February 23, 1963, in the 
Lock Haven Hospital. After earning his B.S. 
in education in 1920, he went on to earn his 
M.A. at Bueknell in 1928. He served in a 
number of schools and was supervising prin- 
cipal in the Lewisburg School System for 25 
years until his retirement. In his later years 
he became a prominent author and his seven 
historical novels, based on the Susquehanna 
River area during the French and Indian Wars 
and the War Between the States occupy a 
prominent place in the Bueknell archives. In 
1955 he was the recipient of the award of 
merit of the Daughters of the American Revo- 
lution in recognition of his writing. Mrs. 
Stover died in 1955. He is survived by two 
daughters: Mrs. Edward Murray (MARJORIE 
STOVER '43), Williamsport; and Mrs. Clar- 
ence Dietrick, English Center. Funeral ser- 
vices were held at Loganton with burial in 
Dunnstown Cemetery at Lock Haven. 

Mr. and Mrs. T. CORTLANDT WIL- 
LIAMS, SR. have joined that ever-growing 
group of Bucknellians who return to Lewis- 
burg upon retirement. The retired board 
chairman of Stone and Webster Inc. has 
bought a home at 136 S. 3rd St., Lewisburg. 
Cort continues his service on the Bueknell 
Board of Trustees, as a member of the Engi- 
neering Advisory Committee, and as a mem- 
ber of the Development Council. His son, 
'46 also brought his family to Lewisburg and 
has established a home in the Westlawn sec- 
tion, although the Major himself is presently 
serving with the regular Army in Saigon.

We are sorry to report the death of Mrs. 
Ellwood S. Derr (SARAH M. BERNHART) 
at her home in Lewisburg on February 5, 
1963. Sarah was an indefatigable worker for 
our class and for Bueknell. having served as 
class reporter for ten years, and was always 
on hand to greet us on the campus at our 
five-year reunions. Sarah is survived by her 
husband, Dr. Ellwood S. Derr, and two sons, 
ELLWOOD, JR. '54 and Carlton. Before her 
marriage she taught in Milton and after that 
time she substituted in the Lewisburg Schools 
until her death. She was a member of the 
Delta Delta Delta Alumnae Club and was ac-

HOLMES T. DOUGLAS, after more than 
40 years of service with the Bell Telephone 
Laboratories in New York, retired on Decem- 
ber 31, and will have more time to devote to 
his favorite outside activities. With three 
sons (his son JOHN ARTHUR graduated from 
Bueknell in 1951), it was perbaps inevitable 
that he should become interested in the Boy 
Scouts of America, and in 1954. he received 
the Silver Beaver Award. In 1961, he com- 
pleted 20 years of service with the Boy Scouts 
in a volunteer capacity. Another activity 
has been the recording of numerous text- 
books on tape and records for use by blind 
students. He will also find more time avail- 
able now for the pursuit of his other hobby 
of "postal" chess and his outdoor activity in 
connection with the Appalachian Mountain 
Club and Echo Lake Camp. 

Rev. CARL A. METZ entered retirement 
February 1, 1963. He and his wife moved 
from Roseville, 111., where he has been pastor 
to the Baptist Church for the past four years, 
to Brookfield, N. Y. There he will become 
a pastor in retirement of the First Baptist 
Church. His address will be N. Academy 
Rd., Brookfield, N. Y. 

After a pastorate of thirty-six years in the 
Hyattsville, Md., Presbyterian Church, Rev. 
D. HOBART EVANS retired with the status 
of pastor emeritus. At a farewell supper he 
and Mrs. Evans were presented with a 1963 
car and a purse. Their new address is 503 
St. Chistopher's Rd., Richmond 26, Va. Best 
wishes for a happy retirement, Hobie!

May 31, 1963 


(formerly Milton Country Club) 

Coming steadily closer — May 31 — with din- 
ner and entertainment that evening at the 
Wynding Brook Country Club. Milton. So. 
reuning classmates, be sure to get here for the 
big important start of the busy week end. I'll 
mention a few of the people you can expect 
to see— BETTY HURST Lecrone, MILDRED 
Ferguson, KATHERINE OWENS Hayden, 
he has become a cardiac since our last re- 
union — but hopes to be present for this one. 
FRANK C. WRIGHT, an executive with the 
American Telephone and Telegraph Company 
for the past 40 years, telephoned from Kan- 
sas City, Mo., to say he is arranging his vaca- 
tion so that he can come to the campus at that 
time. NINA GRACE SMITH says she will 
try to dream up a miracle for herself so that, 
as head of the English department of the Oak 
Park, 111., High School, she will be able to gel 
away at exam time. "SONNY" STABLER, 
who is very efficiently editing our 40th anni- 
versary L 'Agenda, reports an early and en- 
thusiastic response in the return of question- 
naires. DAL GRIFFITH, our reunion chair- 
man, is equally pleased with the over-all re- 
ports of the various committees. One more 
meeting of the organizing committee should, 
in Dai's words, really wrap it up. 

We regret to announce the death of HAR- 
RY 0. DAYHOFF in Harrisburg on February 
17, 1963. He was 66. "Gump," as he was

Harry 0. Dayhoff 

known to thousands of football followers 
throughout the nation, was born in Gettys- 
burg, but spent his boyhood and high school 
days in Steelton where he was an outstanding 
high school athlete. His athletic career blos- 
somed when he starred for Bucknell Univer- 
sity in football, basketball, baseball, and 
track. While a student, he was a member of 
Sigma Chi fraternity, the Glee Club, and the 
"B" Club. After graduation he played for 
several years on professional football teams 
and coached at Steelton and Elkins Park. In 
1926, he began a career as an intercollegiate 
football referee and served in that capacity 
until 1956 when he was honored by election 
to the Football Hall of Fame. Throughout 
his career he was an ardent supporter of 
Bucknell alumni activities, a member of the 
Bucknell University Athletic Advisory Com- 
mittee and much in demand as a speaker at 
alumni club meetings. He and Mrs. Davhoff 
attended the Bucknell birthday meeting of 
the Harrisburg Alumni Club just two weeks 
before his death. Harry was a director of 
the Boy's Club of Harrisburg, an honorary 
citizen of Boys Town, a past president of the 
Harrisburg Lions Club and was active in many 
other civic organizations. He also had an 
outstanding career as a public servant, serv- 
ing on the Harrisburg School Board from 
1944 to 1950, and following that by serving 
as a councilman of the Harrisburg city or- 
ganization as director of Parks and Public 
Property and the Bureau of Fire for two 
terms. He gave up this post in 1957 to as- 
sume duties as secretary and business man- 
ager of the Harrisburg Public Schools, an ap- 
pointment he held until his death. Funeral 
services were held on February 21 with burial 
in Prospect Hill Cemetery in Harrisburg. 

Sincere sympathy is extended to his wife, 
Mrs. Marion C. Dayhoff; a daughter, Mrs. 
Lawrence J. Campbell, Jr.; three brothers. 
Van B. Dayhoff, DAVID R. DAYHOFF '30. 
and Russel F. Dayhoff; a sister, Mrs. Robert 
Johns; and three grandchildren. 

Did you notice the fine record of our class 
as shown in the Alumni Fund Report booklet 
you received in April? FRANK McGREGOR 
has been doing a fine job during the past four 
years as class fund manager, following nine 
years of service by ARDA C. BOWSER. And 
Arda continues to serve as an assistant along 
with seven other faithful class members. We 
could use a few more assistants. Why not 
join the gang — just send your name in to 
Alumni Fund Headquarters in Lewisburg. 

ER and his wife, CLARA PRICE COBER 
'25, recently attended an international meeting! 
of Baptists in Mexico. Both Dr. Cober andi 
his wife have been very active in American ij 
Baptist work. 

We are happy to announce the marriage oflj 
Dr. EFFIE C. IRELAND to the Rev. GeorgeF 
E. Thornton, former pastor of the First Bap- 
tist Church of Jeannette. After her intern- 
ship, following graduation from the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania Medical School, Dr. Ire- 1 
land joined the staff of Laurelton State Vil-| 
lage becoming superintendent in 1940 upon 
the retirement of the late Dr. MARY M. 
WOLFE '96 in 1940. She remained in this I 
post until she resigned the position in 1955 
after a distinguished career of medical serv- j] 
ices to those afflicted with mental disease and If 
epileptic disturbances. Warm good wishes I 
of your classmates are extended to you and I 
Rev. Thornton.

That time is here again and I have been 
away for a month, hope I make the deadline! 
Wrote to a few of you this winter and got 
some most interesting letters in reply, wish 
I could share each letter in full with you all. 
but lack of space must restrain my enthusi- 
asm. I will write of each person as I re- 
ceived their replies. 

One of the members who joined us in our 
senior year was DONALD A. DALLMAN. I 
got word from his wife, the former Dorothy 
Fox, that Deek had died October 2, 1962. He 
had just retired in June as a chemistry teach- 
er and comptroller of school funds. Deek 
was vice president of the Teachers-Veteran 
Association of New Jersey; their dinner meet- 
ing at the convention in June was dedicated to 
Deek; he had been vice president a good many 
years. He was a member of the Athletic 
Board of Phillipsburg High School. A daugh- 
ter also survives. Our deepest sympathy is 
belatedly extended to Dot and her daughter. 

The first reply to arrive was from WALLY 
FOSTER and he sounded like the same good 
natured Wally. He has been with Alcoa for 
25 years, and for the last 10 years since the 
Alcoa Building was built (world's first all 
aluminum skyscraper) he has been the build- 
ing manager, and just recently became man- 
ager of General Office Services. That takes 
in communications (they lease about 30,000 
miles of wire), mail, reproduction (printing), 
and medical. He is vice president of Alcoa 
Service Corporation which takes care of all 
the sales offices and land that Alcoa owns. 
Wally is a member of the board of directors 
of Building Owners and Managers Association 
of Pittsburgh. His hobbies are golfing and 
fishing, and fortunately (?) he lives near the 
Oakmont Country Club. He belongs to the 
Alcoma Golf Club and University Club I Pitts- 
burgh I . Wally is married to a University 
of Pittsburgh graduate and has one daughter, 
Jane, who attends Westminister. NOTE — 
he hopes to attend the 40th reunion in '65. 

The next reply was from BOB BRANDT 
and he lives in Pittsburgh, also. He and his 
Rosemary had just returned from a trip to 
Florida where they visited their married 
daughter, Phyllis. He sounds like a proud 
grandpa but didn't say whether the grand- 



children were boys or girls. They also hope 
ito retire to Florida. Bob works in residential 
,sales promotion of Duquesne Light Company 
in Pittsburgh. 

BILL COLESTOCK was next. After 30 
years he has retired as vice president of the 
Western Savings Bank of Buffalo and has 
moved to Florida! He says, "I didn't retire 
from — I've renewed to a more leisurely exis- 
tence on the Gulf of Mexico." He is registered 
with the United Nations as a technical assis- 
tant or operational executive for foreign ser- 
vice, and has applied for similar type of for- 
eign service with our State Department. He 
jstarted his own little business, public rela- 
tions consultant, to keep him occupied, he 
says. Bill is a graduate of Babson Institute, 
Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers, and 
the School of Public Relations at Northwest- 
ern University. He is married to Lillian Die- 
bold, has three grown sons, and two grand- 
children. Bill winters in Florida and sum- 
mers on an island in Georgian Bay, Ontario. 
Canada. His retired address is Box 385. 
Carrabelle, Fla. 

Will have more news for you in the fall.

Award for Meritorious Achievement, and he has been honored further by 
his Alma Mater by being nominated by the Alumni in 1958 to serve on the 
Board of Trustees. He will complete this five-year term of service in June.

REUNION— Make it this year— as well as 
the "next time." 

The questionnaires have been slow coming 
in, and I fear some of you stuck them away 
and forgot about them. It would be nice if 
you brought us up to date, which reminds me 
— my sincere apologies to SALLY MEYERS 
Griswold. She sent her questionnaire back 
late last time, and it was in the back of the 

PRESTON B. DAVIS, Esq. was elected to 
the office of state senator of the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania in a special election 
held in February, 1963, in the 27th state sen- 
atorial district (the counties of Northumber- 
land, Snyder, and Union I . Pres has been a 
distinguished attorney since his graduation 
from the University of Pennsylvania Law 
School in 1931 and has been a loyal Buck- 
nellian, most recently serving as area chair- 
man in the Dual Development Campaign in 
1960. Our congratulations Pres. We're sure 
you will make a fine senator and wish you 

To HARRY PIERSON: Since when was 
this just my reunion. Isn't it yours too?! 
( via questionnaire) . 

I had a grand talk with FRANK JOHN- 
STON this week. POLLY WARE Ackley 
says he is still "well built." He is constantly 
on the go as associate general secretary of the 
American Baptist Convention, but he is go- 
ing to find time to help on the reunion book. 

DON STREETER and I chatted a few 
weeks ago. He is kept busy with church, 
restoration work and his business, but he's 
squeezing out time to do our cover. We hope 
to be able to use something from CELESTE 
TURLEY Weekley's work, our sculptress 
from West Nyack, N. Y. 

Other members of the staff are ROY H. 
singer, EV PAULING Hublitz, KITTY and 
Smith. There may even be some others added 
later. Bob and I were at Bucknell March 8 
and 9 to talk things over with BRUCE ROS- 
SITER '56 and BROWN FOCHT. We had 
our usual erand, homey time staying with 
Trix and BUCK SHOTT '22. 

In addition to the biographies, there will lie 
a number of other interesting items, so even 
if you cannot get back for reunion, we hope 
the reunion book will give you interesting data 
and news of your former classmates. Plan to 
send for one if you do not come back. 

Do try to be with us on May 31 for the class 
dinner at the Wynding Brook Country Club. 
On June 1 we will hold our class business 
meeting on the "hill" at 10:30 A. M. and in 
the afternoon, following the Alumni Lunch- 
eon, there will be a women's residence house 
reserved for us so that we all can get together 
and gab. Let's make this 35th reunion the 
best reunion we have ever experienced. I'll 
be seeing you in June.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to Mrs. 
death of her husband, Arthur D. Kille, from

Ariz., hospital on December 30, 1962. 

I was so very happy to receive a Christmas 
card with a picture of MARGARET SCHUY- 
LER Augustine, her husband, and two fine 
boys. I am sorry the picture cannot be repro- 
duced here for the pleasure of all classmates. 

In my letter from PEG SCHUYLER Au- 
gustine, she told me of visiting with

ter. Priscilla, who attended Redlands Uni- 
versity in California. Pat has taken advanced 
work at the University of California, and 
keeps in touch with Bucknell by being a 
member of the Los Angeles Alumni Club. 

Now "gang" — let's start saving pennies — 
dollars — etc., and head back to the campus 
for our big reunion year — 1965. Everyone 
will have to promise not to mention "age" — 
just be happy to be among those present!

W June Reunion — 1963 


June 1, 1963 

Class officers and members of the reunion 
committee are making great plans for our 30th 
reunion— May 31, June 1. and 2, 1963— and 
it is our hope that this will be the biggest and

In the evening we will have a dinner at the 
Lewisburg Club, beginning at 6:00 o'clock. 
Further information regarding reservations, 
etc., will be sent to you at a later date. 

If the incentive to meet your classmates 
and relive old college memories is not enough 
for you to make definite plans now to return, 
don't forget the reunion book that will be dis- 
tributed at the time of our reunion. BILL 
LIMING has put many long hours of work 
into this publication and it promises to be 
one that we will all treasure. So, before you 
do another thing, circle the dates of May 31, 
June 1. and 2 on your calendar and plan to 
join the gang at Lewisburg.

of 1961 he and his wife, Josephine, spent a 
month traveling through Alaska. This past 
fall they took a three-weeks' trip through 
southeastern United States. Bud has become 
quite a camera fan. They have some beauti- 
ful pictures of their trips.

Your reporter is very pleased with the re- 
sponse to her appeal for news. Keep those 
cards coming in! I do hope I'll see many of 
vou at Alumni Day, June 1, then I can truly 
thank you in person. If you can't be in Lew- 
isburg in '63, please mark those calendars 
for June '64, for our 30th reunion. Until then, 
hope you'll enjoy the following. 

DORIS ROLFE Jackson lives at 19 Jack- 
son Ave., Pen Argyl, and her husband Allen 
(Lafayette '3D is a Lt. Colonel in the Army 
Reserve and a Kappa Sig. They have three 
children: Susan, a junior at Cedar Crest 
College; Bill, a freshman at Lafayette, who 
played frosh football on the GEORGE Mc- 
GAUGHEY '35 team this past fall: and Jean 
Ann, a junior at Pen Argyl Joint Area High 

100 Moore Rd., Coatesville. Betty's husband 
is judge of the Court of Common Pleas of 
Chester County. They have a seventeen-year- 
old son at Perkiomen Prep School. Betty's 
hobby is traveling in Europe whenever pos- 

PAUL R. McCLURE of Thompsontown is 
cashier, director, and secretary of the Board 
of The Port Royal National Bank at Port 
Royal. Mrs. McClure, the former Maude 
Ehrenzeller, is currently teaching speech in 
the schools of Juniata Co. Their daughter. 
Brenda, is a junior and son, Rodney, a sopho- 
more at East Juniata H. S. at Coeolamus. 

Colonel LEE A. GROVE is now living at 
5515 Ferndale St., North Springfield. Va. Lee 
and family have returned to the Washington 
area from a three-year tour in Stuttgart, Ger- 
many. Lee is now Chief of Schools Branch 
Office of the Surgeon General. He married 
Ellen Holleran of Richmond, Va., and they 
have two daughters: Rosemary, a sophomore 
at Annandale, Va., High School; and Kristine, 
who is in the second grade at St. Michael's 
School, Annandale, Va. Lee began his army 
career in 1941. 

HARRY A. FITHIAN writes that he is 
busy in private law practice and also is an 
assistant district attorney — "trying to make 
enough money to support my family and keep 
up with taxes" — sounds familiar! He and 
Mary are active in local community affairs in 
Williamsport, where they live at 1537 Elliot 
St., with David, a six-footer, who is a junior 
in high school, and Carol, who is in 9th grade 
and thinks she wants to be a nurse. David, 
like most young men his age, hasn't decided 
what he wants to be as yet. 

CLAVIN FISHER writes that he and his 
wife, ELIZABETH MURRAY '35, and their 
son, Peter, have been taking 35 teenagers on 
bicycle trips in the summer and skiing week 
ends in the winter but this year they will join 
their daughter, Wendy, in England where she 
is a student at Durham University. They 
plan a six-week tour from Norway to Switzer- 
land, hiking and cycling. Sounds just won- 
derful, doesn't it ! When at home, the Fish- 
er's are at 26 Nimrod Rd.. West Simsbury. 

EVELYN HAWK Haney and her husband. 
Warren, live at R. D. No. 1, Milford, N. J., 
Box 399. They are always glad to see any 
Bucknell friends. Warren is with the Riegel 
Paper Corp. and Ev teaches in the Milford 
Schools. One daughter, Noralie Haney La- 
Fevre, has two baby boys — Dana (2) and Dean 
(9 months). Fay, their younger daughter is 
a Bucknell "hopeful" for 1964. 

Although ANN ORR Deschanel will resume 
her work as our class reporter in the fall, she 
has a pair of willing substitutes taking over 
for her temporarily. We are HOWARD and 
MARION ROOT FRANK. Do help us to do 
a good pinch-hitting job by sending your lat- 
est news to our home address, 3228 S. Broad 
St., Trenton 10, N. J. 

The reason for this substitution is a sad 
one. Ann's husband, Paul, was killed in an 
automobile accident in Denver, Colo., late in 
January. We saw Ann when she came East 
for the memorial service held at the Haverford 
Friends Meeting in Ardmore, near their form- 
er home. Ann's two children must be a great 
consolation to her. Diane, a student at Anti- 
och, is engaged in off-campus work in Phila- 
delphia, while Caleb, better known as "Joe," 
is a student at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, 

Stokes T. Henry) were other Bucknell friends 
we met at the service. When Ann returned 
to Denver, Colo., where she will continue her 
school-counselling work until summer, BERT 
RUTGERS Conover '36 met her at the airport. 

During the past year, we've enjoyed renew- 
ing our friendship with VERNON STOMP- 
LER '36 and his wife, Terese, who live in 
nearby Penndel. Vern is city sanitary engi- 
neer for Newtown. 

It was at the Stompler's home that we met 
another B. LI. engineering friend, RAY HILL. 
Ray, his wife and two lively young sons, were 
visiting from Netcong, N. J., where they live. 

JEROME D. MORRIS, after spending most 
of his life in northern New Jersey, has moved 
in the Washington, D. C, area where he is 
serving as research program administrator in 
the NASA Headquarters. Jerry works within 
the structure of the space sciences and space 
exploration to put men on the moon and bring 
them safely back again. Another milestone in 
his interesting career was his recent promotion 
to Lt.-Col. in the Air Force Reserve. Jerry 
and the family live at 13017 Matey Rd., 
Wheaton, Md. 

WILLIAM N. BARTO has joined the J. J. 
Newberry Company in the Lewisburg area as 
advertising coordinator. Bill has been a news- 
oaperman for some years and continues his 
interest in local sports and news writing. 

cently has had published in The Instructor 
her play "Around the World in December." 
Doris earned her Master of Science degree at 
Hofstra College in 1960 and has been teach- 
ing in Oceanside, N. Y., since 1959, prior to 
which she served as a medical secretary from 
1947 to 1959. 

Are you planning to return to the campus 
for Alumni Week End, May 31, June 1, and 
'2'. If you haven't already decided to do so, 
now's the time. So check those dates on your 
calendar and start counting the days. 

Don't forget — send those cards and letters 
Trenton-ward — now !

This time no "hard news," as the commen- 
tators say — just chit-chat. 

The Philadelphia Alumni Club dinner was 
fun this year. The Zieglers and Shauhs (see 
column above) shared a table with ALICE 
MOORE '40, now a Philadelphia librarian, 
and Lou and ALICE TYSON Buek '36. We 
also had a nice visit with BETTY WEBB 
Hamburg '40. Betty and Bill are living in 
Devon and Dottie and Allen are also "great- 
er Philadelphians." Allen is now an orthopedic 
surgeon. Our class was represented by HERB 

The local press, reporting on the victory of 
Bucknell's swimming team over La Salle in 
an MAC meet, listed Clinton Condict as tak- 
ing second place in the 200-yd. backstroke. 
This Clinton is a j. g. Condict. 

At this writing the remainder of the Nylund 
clan, MAJOR MILTON E. NYLUND '42 with

JACK YOUNG last December, and wish to 
express our condolences to the members of 
his family. Jack made his home in La Mirada, 

the editor of The New Aurora, published by 
the Italian Baptist Association of America. 
The interesting magazine, published monthly 
as an evangelical witness to people of Italian 
backgrounds and others, is divided into a sec- 
tion in English and a section in Italian. Tony's 
daughter, Judy, will graduate from Bucknell 
in June. 

That's it until the September issue. You 
have all summer to let us know how things 
are in your megalopolis.

the local committee for arrangements, and 
here are the plans. Friday night, an "Open

(one mile south of the Lewisburg bridge on 
Route 14 — turn left at "The Fence") ; Satur- 
day morning, a get-together of the class at 
the University, followed by the luncheon for 
all Alumni and friends. Then the class is in-

The winner! Last year during Alum- 
ni W eek End. Herbert M. Heaney '42 
walked away with the first place trophy 
for winning the annual "Early Bird 
Golf Tournament" sponsored by the 
Class of 1950. Again, this year on May 
31, June 1, and 2, the Class of 1950 
will sponsor the event, and it is hoped 
all the golf "bugs" returning for re- 
unions will compete in the tournament.

the latter to BOB REITZ. R. D. No. 1, Mil-

nell on May 31, June 1, and 2. 

BILL VANDUREN has been promoted to 
assistant plant manager at the DuPont Plant 
in Connecticut. BilCOLIVE (DECKER '37), 
Kathy, and Bill. Jr.. will move to Fairfield. 
Conn., on July 1. 

All aboard? We're heading into the home 
stretch. I sure hope everyone is coming to 
enjoy a day and happy reunion — May 31, June 
1. and 2. Some already on board are: 
ER, and yours truly. I hope those saying 
"maybe" will be saying "yes" and won't those 
of you who have said "no" — say "yes?" 

In the March 26, 1963, science supplement 
of the Washington Daily News, Dr. ERNEST 
BLANCHE is quoted as saying, "there is room 
in Washington's growing scientific community 
for the young engineer or scientist to organ- 
ize and successfully operate his own firm." 
And, who is better qualified to make this ob- 
servation than Ernie! In 1955 he had an 
idea that it could be done and now he heads 
his own firm, located in a new S200.000 build- 
ing, with 110 employees. Prior to his present 
job. Ernie was a statistician for the Army, 
and through this experience, he became aware 
for the need of data processing statistics and 
mathematics in many areas of government.

Hurray for this comment! It was probably 
provoked by the new low (one paragraph — 
how low can you get?) in our reports in the 
November and January issues: "All I can say 
about the Class of 1940." deplores this class- 
mate, whose name may be legion for all I 
know, "is that none of them provide you with 
any news so that it can be printed in the 
ALUMNUS. Maybe we need to have an alumni 
program to prod them into dropping you a 
line at least once a year." How about that? 

Happily, things are looking up somewhat 
— we may have three (or even four!) items 
this time. 

PAT McQUAY Sibley has been an instruc- 
tor in the English department at Alfred Uni- 
versity since September, 1961. Her husband, 
Mike, is chairman of the Department of Phil- 
osophy and Religion there. Pat and Mike 
have two children: Marilyn, 17, who is an

Mark, 15.

cember 21, 1962. issue of Printer's Ink, for 
his contribution in the magazine's special fea- 
ture "The Ad I'll Always Remember." Don's 
article "The Night I Wrote a Picture" tells ! 
how he wrote the directions for taking a photo- 
graph used to illustrate an advertisement for 
a diamond Hamilton watch — an advertisement ; 
that later was selected as one of "the best ad- 
vertisements from Reader s Digest." If you

A nice note from GERMAINE ROSHON 
Seltzer arrived just a few hours after I 
mailed my last column. Written in the mid- 
dle of January's snow, it will be read when 
the flowers bloom! She, her husband, Bill 
(Lehigh '40), now with the Glidden Paint 
Company, and ten-year-old William have re- 
cently moved back to Reading — Germaine's 
home town. She's doing a bit of antiqueing 
and mentioned a dry sink with five layers of 
hard-to-get-off paint, one of which is "combed" 
and had buttermilk in it! That won't sound 
very enticing to those of you who like Danish 
Moderne, but it fascinates me. Also the fact 
that her mother still owns the old family farm 
— the Metzger Farm — which was a William 
Penn grant. Germaine taught biology for two 
years after graduation, so she enjoys the 
school science fairs held in Davis Gym 
each year. She then went to Yale Uni- 
versity School of Nursing for her M.N. de- 
gree and said manv Bucknell Alumnae have 
also studied there— MARY ELLEN OESTER- 
LE Haw, whom we all remember as "Meo," 
and BETTY GRIM Louis, or "Grimmie." 

Our oldest daughter, Wendy, chose to be 
independent and is enrolled at Denison Uni- 
versity. It is almost a sister school to Buck- 
nell, as the same lovely small-town atmos- 
phere prevails. A hilly campus with beauti- 
ful oaks and red brick Georgian buildings 
further stress the similarity although it was 
settled by Ohio Baptists in 1831. We are 
very pleased with her choice, although our 
loyalties still remain at old B. U.

We are happy to report that Mrs. Ferdinand 
S. Wiederspahn (JEAN P. WILLIAMS) fin- 

j ally has received her Bucknell diploma! And 
thereby hangs a tale — or maybe we should 

I say, a tour. Some of us may recall that at 
graduation time in June, 1945, because of a 
shortage of sheepskin-like paper, we received 

la substitute diploma. Following the war, 
the University mailed to all graduates of the 
class a new diploma on the standard first qual- 
ity paper stock. Well, somehow "'Willy's" 
diploma did not reach her (she has moved 
13 times since 1945) and the diploma evi- 
dently landed in the "loose" mail department 

, of the post office in Washington, D. C. Luck-

Comments on 


The 375th charter member of William Bucknell Associates happened to 
be an Alumnus who covered his $100 check and enrollment card with the 
kind of letter that would brighten the day of any administrator. He wrote 
that Bucknell "was very good to me," that he had had scholarship and work 
aid while an undergraduate. It was a pleasure for him to enclose "a small 
token of my appreciation." 

The hedonic calculus for many of us doesn't include giving money among 
the pleasures of life. We give from duty, from obligation, from social pres- 
sure, from loyalty, from responsibility, from habit, for prestige, for pride, 
for service, for mankind, for tax deductibility — the motives are many and 
mixed, noble and ignoble, small and large, selfish and altruistic. But, giving 
for pleasure — that's refreshing, and the cheerful giver is loved by the Lord 
and alma mater alike. 

Of course, it's not a cheap pleasure, and perhaps semantically we mean 
satisfaction, the durable, high-minded, full-bodied joy that is linked with 
benefit to others. 

It is pleasant and satisfying to give because we may, not because we 
must, and it is vital to our "pursuit of happiness" as a people to achieve our 
cultural, educational and social goals, as far as possible, through the voluntary 
and private sector. It is pleasant to give; it is painful to be taxed. I think 
both the Cyrenaics and Jeremy Bentham, who had a lot to say about the 
pleasure-principle, centuries apart, would agree. 

Anyway, Bucknell is proud of and pleased with its giving Alumni and 
friends. Please give and keep giving — from any mind or motive — but prefer- 
ably with pleasure and satisfaction. 

Literally, there is "fun" in fund-raising, and a spiritual dividend of joy 
is present in whatever carries happy benefits for all, even unto those who will 
come after us.

June Reunion — 1963 

SKIP WIEDER and his good wife. CLAIRE,

on May 31, June 1, and 2. As you know. Skip

good response to the reunion book question- 
naire, and we know with Claire doing the 
editing job we will have a book we will all 
treasure for many years to come. 

Although we have been graduated only 
five years ago, there have been many changes 
on the campus which I am sure we will want 
to see. But more important to us than seeing 
all the physical changes at our Alma Mater, 
is the opportunity afforded us to renew old 
friendships. This week end is a fun week end 

and the more class members who return the 
more fun we'll have. Plan now to return. 
Further information on our own class plans 
will be sent to you soon.
